A major development that has 
flowed naturally from the emer- 
gence of the indie A&R producer 
as a significant contributor to to- 
day’s disk hits is beginning to 
make its impact felt on the disk 
business. 

We are moving into an era, it 
seems, of the artist who comes 
neatly wrapped in a package de- 
livered by indie producers, many 
of whom are no longer living out 
of a late hour recording session, 
so to speak, but are entrepreneurs 
in the most complex sense of the 
word. 

Indie producers who once were 
billed on disks by only their names 
now are either represented by the 
word “Inc.” following their sur- 
names or are silently referred to 
by cute elisions or “brand” names. 

What this has meant as far as 
artists are concerned is that many 
of our most popular disk attrac- 
tions are living two contractual 
lives. One ties them to the disk 
company, the other to the indie 
producer. In some cases, an artist 
has sole legal allegiance to the in- 
die producer, who may have a sta- 
ble of artists under such deals. 

We have already seen that the 
industry is not yet completely 
adapted to this situation. Our 
news pages over the past few 
months have contained a number 
of stories relating to legal actions 
that have been instituted by disk 
firms against artists who, recorded 
by an indie producing group, have 
switched label affiliations in the 
midst of success on former disk- 
eries, with the news coming as a 
shock to most of the trade. 

The conclusion to be drawn 
from such sudden games of mu- 
sical chairs is that the indie pro- 


ducer who cuts and “owns” an 
artist is calling the shots in mak- 
ing moves that he deems most ad- 
vantageous to his artist. His course 
of action may be so extreme as to 
mean an end of ties with a label 
he is cutting a particular artist for 
—no matter how profitable the as- 
sociation seems to be on the sur- 
face. 

Where legal actions have been 
taken as a result of complete 
breaks with a label, we’ll leave it 
to the courts to decide the merits 
of the case. 

But, it is a fact that artists can 
suddenly shift diskeries as a re- 
sult of their being part of an indie 
producing operation. 

There have been a number of 
such cases in recent months in 
which an indie producer, upon ex- 
piration of his production agree- 
ment with a label, has taken his 
whole stable and opened his own 
record company, or has peddled 
the package in search of financial 
backing that would leave the pro- 
ducer with an interest in the man- 
ufacturing aspect of his own 
product. 

One apparent outcome of this 
new standing of the indie pro- 
ducer in the industry is the host 
of artists who are represented 
with chart dates on at least two 
competing labels. 

Therefore, even the label which 
is the benefactor of an indie pro- 
ducer-artist decision to shift labels 
must weigh the consequences of its 
wind-fall. The industry as a whole 
—faced with the increasing signifi- 
cance of the “packaged artist”— 
must also ponder the realities of a 
business that is moving in revolu- 
tionary new directions of artist- 
label relationships.

CAPITOL TO DEBUT NEW INDIE 
TOWER LABEL IN SEPTEMBER 


HOLLYWOOD— Capitol Records will 
launch a totally independent subsid 
label on or about Sept. 1. That’s the 
word from Alan W. Livingston, pres- 
ident of Capitol. Tentatively called 
Tower Records, the new label will 
initially release singles, to be fol- 
lowed by suitable album product. 

Gordon R. Fraser, currently head 
of Capitol’s international division, will 
run Tower, reporting directly to 
Livingston. Other personnel will in- 
clude Vito Samela as national sales 
and promotion manager, an A&R Man 


Pepper To Succeed Samela 
As Capitol's Singles Chief 

HOLLYWOOD — Wade Pepper has 
been appointed national single-record 
sales and promotion manager, Capi- 
tol Records Distributing Corp., it was 
announced last week by Stan Gorti- 
kov, CRDC vice president and gen- 
eral manager. Pepper, who will re- 
port to national sales manager Bill 
T allant, succeeds Vito Samela, who 
will assume a similar post with Capi- 
tol’s new subsidiary label, Tower 
Records (see separate story). 

Pepper, for the past eight years 
CRDC’s regional manager in the 
southeast, will move from Atlanta to 
New Yoi'k when he assumes his new 
post. 

Pepper joined CRDC in 1952 as a 
salesman in Cincinnati. Four years 
later he was transferred to Atlanta 
as branch sales Manager, serving for 
one year until being promoted Re- 
gional manager. 


Mikels To Be Capitol's 
New Global Sales Head 

HOLLYWOOD— Bill Mikels is being 
promoted to Manager of the inter- 
national division of Capitol Records, 
Inc., according to Lloyd W. Dunn, 
vice president of the division. Mikels, 
who will report directly to Dunn, suc- 
ceeds Gordon R. Fraser, who has been 
named to head Capitol’s new subsi- 
diary label, Tower Records (see sep- 
arate story). 

Mikels was appointed international 
marketing manager of Capitol in 
January, 1963. He joined Capitol 
Records Distributing Corp. in 1950 
at its Oklahoma City Branch and 
later served as sales manager there 
and at the St. Louis branch. In 1957 
he was appointed District Sales Man- 
ager and in 1959 came to the Capitol 
Tower with his promotion to Assist- 
ant national sales manager. He was 
then promoted to Assistant national 
merchandising manager and album 
sales manager.

yet to be named, and field promotion 
men. 

Tower will sell through indie dis- 
tribs, which have not yet been se- 
lected. 

About seven years ago, Capitol 
formed an indie diskery called Prep, 
which had closer ties to the Capitol 
organization than Tower. Diskery’s 
limited success, however, brought 
about its demise shortly after its 
debut. 

Tower is being formed, Livingston 
said, because Capitol “simply cannot 
release and properly exploit the tre- 
mendous amount of good material 
which is available to us. We con- 
stantly have to turn down material 
which we feel is salable, then watch 
it turn up on other labels. With 
Tower, we will be able to keep the 
px’ofit in the family.” 

“Bud Fraser will be running Tower 
totally independent of Capitol,” Liv- 
ingston said. “He will, in fact, be in 
direct competition with Capitol in 
all respects — for artists, for material, 
for airplay, and for sales.” 

Fraser said Tower would draw on 
four principal sources for its records: 
independent producers, its own A&R 
men, imported masters from the my- 
riad EMI labels throughout the world, 
and referrals of artists, songs, and 
masters from Capitol’s A&R Depart- 
ment. 

Tower will not have any regular 
release pattern, Fraser said. “When 
we have a record we think will sell, 
we’ll put it out as fast as possible. 
And as soon as we have our first 
hit single, then Tower will be in the 
album business. The way we’ll be 
operating, practically everything we 
put out will be a rush.” 

It has not yet been determined 
whether Tower will be a wholly- 
owned subsidiary of Capitol Records 
or a division. Fraser will not assume 
his new post with Tower until he 
has wound up his responsibilities in 
the international dept., which will 
take from four to six weeks. 

In running Tower, Bud Fraser will 
be able to draw upon a background 
of 18 years with Capitol. He joined 
Capitol Records Distributing Corp. in 
April, 1946, as a salesman in Min- 
neapolis. Subsequently, he was pro- 
moted to branch manager in Min- 
neapolis, then in Detroit, and was 
later elevated to midwest district 
sales manager. 

In 1953, he was transferred to 
Capitol’s Hollywood headquarters as 
Assistant National Merchandising 
Manager. Two years later he was 
promoted to Director of Merchandis- 
ing, then, in 1958, to director of 
sales. 

Fraser was named Director of CRI’s 
international division in January, 1960, 
and in December, 1962, assumed addi- 
tional responsibilities as executive 
vice president and general manager 
of Capitol Records International Corp. 


Latin Disk Men In 
Mexico City This Week 

NEW YORK — Mexico City plays host 
this week to the bi-annual meeting of 
the Latin-American Federation of

Victor Adds More Fuel 
To Presley Promo, Bow 
6 Gold Standard Decks 

NEW YORK— RCA Victor Records 
has expanded its plans for the Elvis 
Presley campaign launched last week 
by adding six of the star’s Gold 
Standard singles to an already inten- 
sive April-May sales and promo pro- 
gram. 

The two-month Presley campaign 
was instituted to celebrate Presley’s 
eighth year with the company and to 
mark his achievement of one hundred 
million World-Wide sales in that 
period of time. Included in the “Elvis 
Presley Months of April and May” 
program is the entire Victor catalog 
of Presley recox-dings: 36 singles, 20 
LP’s and 23 EP’s. 

The six Gold Standard singles, now 
a spotlighted feature of the two- 
month Presley campaign, are: “Kiss 
Me Quiek”/“Suspicion,” “Blue Moon 
of Kentucky”/“That’s All Right,” 
“Good Rockin’ Tonight”/“I Don’t 
Care If The Sun Don’t Shine,” “Heart- 
break Hotel”/“I Was The One,” 
“Hound Dog”/“Don’t Be Cruel” and 
“All Shook Up”/“That’s When Your 
Heartaches Begin.” “Heartbreak 
Hotel” is of course the famous Pres- 
ley “first,” his debut single for Vic- 
tor. “Kiss Me Quick” backed with 
“Suspicion” is a new Presley Gold 
Standard edition; both are from Elvis’ 
“Pot Luck” album, and “Kiss Me 
Quick” has sold more than 600,000 
copies in Europe, alone. 

The six Gold Standard singles will 
be in new four-color sleeves, each 
bearing a different picture of Elvis 
and, on the liner side, each lists Elvis’ 
complete Victor singles catalog. 

Promotional and merchandising aids 
created a heightened interest in Pres- 
ley’s Gold Standard singles, as an 
integral part of the over-all two- 
months campaign that covers all 
Presley product, include: (1) Gold 
Standard Counter Merchandiser that 
feature all six singles and the picture 
sleeves (2) Dealer Order Foi’ms that 
cover all of the Gold Standard singles 
(3) Four-page counter give-aways 
that spotlight Elvis’ “Kissin’ Cousins” 
album plus the complete Presley EP, 
singles and EP catalog (4) Pocket- 
size calendars bearing Elvis’ portrait 
in color (5) A special disc jockey kit 
containing all six newly-packaged 
Gold Standard Presley singles, for 
national distribution. 

“Kissin’ Cousins,” Presley’s newest 
movie, is currently showing through- 
out the country. 


RIAA To NAB: Let's 
Form A Joint Committee 

CHICAGO — A proposal to form a 
joint committee of representatives of 
the National Association of Broad- 
casters (NAB) and Record Industry 
Association of America (RIAA) was 
made in Chicago last week at the 
NAB convention. 

The suggestion was forwarded to 
NAB members by Henry Brief, execu- 
tive secretary of RIAA, in an address, 
“Radio & Records: A Concert in 
Sound,” which was coupled with an 
audio-visual presentation. 

Upon his return to New York, Brief 
told Cash Box he was “bouyed” by 
the positive response to the proposal 
from various NAB sources. While 
much is yet to be done to realize such 
a two-industry committee, Brief said 
that he expected to contact NAB 
execs during a trip he is making to 
Washington this week. 

In speaking for the RIAA, Brief 
relayed the association’s desire for a 
joint committee near the conclusion of 
his lengthy, fact-filling remarks. 

“Because our two industries are so 
closely linked,” he began, “I should 
like to propose the creation under the 
aegis of our two trade associations 
... of a joint committee that would 
meet regularly, that could discuss 
problem situations involving either or 
both of our industries where one

FTC Extends Written 
Comment Filing On 
Trade Practice Rules 
To April 22nd; 


Industry Praised By 
Hall, Rep. Roosevelt 


NEW YORK —The Federal Trade 
Commission (FTC) has extended the 
period in which it will receive written 
comments on its proposed trade prac- 
tice rules for the disk industry. 

In a letter to the general trade, 
E. H. Hall, Jr., chief of the division 
of trade practice conferences and 
guides, stated that “Letters, memo- 
randa, briefs and other written com- 
munication received by the Commis- 
sion not later than April 22, 1964, 
will be given careful consideration 
by the Commission not later than 
April 22, 1964, will be given careful 
consideration by the Commission prior 
to proceeding to final action with re- 
spect to promulgation of trade prac- 
tice rules for (the record) industry.” 

This is the FTC’s second extension 
for the submission of written com- 
ment on the matter. 

At the historic FTC trade rules 
conference on Mar. 13 in Washington, 
John Benton, FTC attorney, added 
20 days to the filing of written com- 
ments, which was initially due to 
end just prior to the hearing. Hall 
was one of the four members of the 
spokesmen at the conference. 

As previously reported in Cash Box, 
it is unlikely that a second trade 
l’ules hearing will be conducted by 
the FTC on the final set of nxles, 
and the Hall letter would seem to 
bear this out. 

It is believed that the FTC will 
issue its final set of trade rules some- 
time at the close of June or early 
July. However, even an official pro- 
mulgation of FTC rules is open to 
amendment. 

The Hall letter also praised the 
industry with the following state- 
ment: “The cooperation of all con- 
cerned has been most welcome. The 
industry also received praise from 
Rep. James Roosevelt (D-Calif.) at a 
recent hearing held by his Subcom-

MOA Meet Gets Early 
OK Of All 4 Juke Box 
Firms, Stronger Label Bid 


CHICAGO — All four juke-box manu- 
facturers have confirmed their partici- 
pation as exhibitors at this year’s 
gathering of the Music Operators of 
American (MOA) in Chicago (Oct. 
14-16), Fred Granger, the organiza- 
tion’s managing director, announced 
last week. 

At last year’s meet, held in Sept., 
there was serious doubt that the four 
firms would be on hand once more at 
an MOA gathering, but the fourth 
manufacturer was signed-up just 
prior to the meet. Bringing the four 
firms back in the MOA fold was con- 
sidered an outcome of MOA’s re- 
vitalization program in 1963. 

Renewed confidence in MOA also 
brought about some label exhibition 
at the 1963 confab. 

In citing the significance of the 
early decision by the juke-box com- 
panies, Foster declared: “This addi- 
tional time element prior to our forth- 
coming convention gives us enough 
time to talk to the record companies. 
We are certainly going to go all out 
for their support as well.” 

This year’s convention is shifting 
sites from the Morrison Hotel to the 
Sherman House. 

Before a meeting last Mon. (6) of 
officers of MOA and reps of the four 
juke-box firms, there wei’e no firm 
commitments. 

The meet was attended by MOA’s 
Lou Casola, president, Clint Pierce, 
vp and Granger; firm reps included 
Stanley Jarocki, Seeburg, A. D. Palm- 
er, Wurlitzer, Hugh Gorman, Rock- 
Ola, and Fred Poliak and Paul 
Huebsch, Rowe AC.

NARM Meet Display Area A Sell-Out, Capitol & Vee Jay Settle 
More Details On Business Activity Suits On Beatles Product 


PHILADELPHIA — Display area at 
the forthcoming NARM (rack-jobber) 
confab in Miami Beach (April 19-23) 
is a complete sell-out, the association 
announced last week. This means that 
the two floor display area at the Eden 
Roc Hotel, site of the convention, will 
be fully occupied by NARM’s asso- 
ciate (diskery) member companies, 
which will gather with 54 regular 
(rack-jobber) member firms. 

NARM also reported in more detail 
on the business sessions that are an 
annual highlight of the organization’s 
meets, including the line-up of execs 
at panel discussions. 

On Monday and Tuesday afternoons 
(April 20 and 21), and all day on 
Wednesday (April 22), the rack mer- 
chandisers will visit with the manu- 
facturers as well as suppliers of ac- 
cessories, display fixtures, and pack- 
aging material. Each company, both 
label and rack jobber, will be provided 


in his convention kit with a pre-set 
visiting plan, so that he can see every- 
one in attendance at the annual meet- 
ing. 

In past years, one of the most in- 
teresting, as well as informative 
features of the Business Sessions at 
the convention have been the panel 
discussions. Leading off on the first 
day of business (Monday, April 20), 
will be a panel session pitting asso- 
ciate members Stan Gortikov of Capi- 
tol Records Distributing Corp.; John 
Y. Burgess of RCA Victor Records; 
Len Levy of Epic; and Randall Wood 
of Vee Jay; against regular members 
Cecil H. Steen of Recordwagon, Inc. 
(Woburn, Mass.); Jack Geldbart of 
L and F Record Service, Inc. (Atlanta, 
Georgia) ; George A. Berry of Modern 
Record Service, Inc. (New Orleans); 
and Lou J. Kustas of Toy House of 
Hudson Valley (Poughkeepsie, New

Big Kapp Promo Tells Story Of Jones' TV-Disk Exposure 


NEW YORK — Keeping up with a 
Jones who is making big disk news, 
Kapp Records is out with a special 
promo to spread the word about 
singer Jack Jones. 

Interestingly, the label is hitching 
its merchandising aids on the songster 
to his current standing on TV, on 
which he is getting abundant ex- 
posure. Between the 12-week periods 
of Feb. 23 and May 15, the per- 
former’s schedule calls for seven net- 
work appearances on major shows. 
He’s already appeared on the Judy 
Garland, Bell Telephone, Ed Sullivan, 
Jimmy Dean and Bob Hope TV’ers. 


He’s yet to guest on the Joey Bishop 
and Jack Paar (April 15) shows. Com- 
bined audience viewing of these pro- 
grams is a startling 120,000,000. 

In view of this exposure, Kapp dis- 
play pieces, streamers, etc. highlight 
the artist as “TV’s newest singing 
sensation.” For the promo, the diskery 
is also continuing its novel dealer ad 
kit idea. This device enables a dealer 
to, in effect, be his own ad agency in 
preparing layouts for insertion in 
local papers. Kapp offers the dealers 
ad mats on all six of Jack Jones’ 
album covers to date, which he can

NEW YORK — Enoch Light, whose 
Command albums help put stereo on 
the disk sales map, has come-up with 
another stereo innovation designed to 
whet the appetites of stereo fans. 

Called “Dimension 3,” it creates the 
illusion of a three-channel sound 
without the need for a third (or 
center) speaker. Thus, in addition to

Command Skeds Month-Long 
Promo For Enoch Light LP's 

NEW YORK — The artistry of Enoch 
Light is getting a special month-long 
spotlight from Command Records. An 
“Enoch Light Month” promo cam- 
paign kicks-off this week (15) and 
continues through May 15. 

In addition to baton duties at Com- 
mand, Light is also functions as the 
label’s head, A&R chief, supervises all 
wax sessions and edits all magnetic 
film. 

The promo campaign will feature 
all 23 of the orkster’s Command 
albums plus a special LP titled, 
“Enoch Light’s Command Perform- 
ances,” which features a dozen ar- 
rangements culled from earlier Light 
LP’s. The diskery will also issue a 
new Enoch Light package, “Dimen- 
sion 3,” which is the label’s new 
sound offering that creates an illusion 
of a third speaker in stereo reproduc- 
tion (see separate story). During the 
“Light” month, his Command per- 
formances set will be specially priced 
at $2.98. 

On the opening day of the cam- 
paign, Light will be honored in his

the usual left-and-right sound sources, 
the new technique provides a middle 
“ghost” speaker, giving an effect that 
gives music on disks greater depth. 
No additional stereo equipment, it 
was emphasized, is required to play 
“Dimension 3” disks. 

Command is unveiling “Dimension 
3” in an album of the same that is 
being marketed nationally this week 
(15) only in a stereo version. 

Performing a set of mostly stand- 
ards is Light himself and his Light 
Brigade, long a best-selling attraction 
on Command. 

The trade press previewed the new 
development at Fine Studios in New 
York last Wed. (8). As Loren Becker, 
Command’s sales topper, note, the 
studio was also the scene of trade 
debuts of other major Command 
product, including the first “Persua- 
sive Percussion,” which became a 
standard for a rash of musical stereo 
albums, five years ago, and Stereo 35, 
the use of 35mm magnetic tape to 
record a session, several years later. 

RIC Bows With 4 

NEW YORK — Recording Industries 
Corp. (RIC), the diskery that re- 
cently was born as a result of a $1 
million stock issue, is ready with its 
debut showings on the disk market. 

At a New York press meet last 
Wed. (8), the Joe Csida-headed disk- 
ery unveiled its initial product — four 
singles — along with further details on 
the operation. 

In rounding out its A&R staff, 
Csida disclosed that Marty Gold, the 
vet maestro-arranger, would cut ses- 
sions for the label on a free-lance 
basis. Gold retains his affiliation with 
RCA Victor Records as an artist and 
producer, where he has come-up with 
some of the label’s top “sound” al- 
bums. Csida noted that while the new 
label has its own A&R staff, indie 
producers would be recruited as re- 
quired. Of the four decks, two were 
produced by house A&R men, two by 
indie producers. 

One of the new sides, by Los 
Angeles Ram’s tackle Roosevelt 
Grier, was produced by Bobby Darin 


HOLLYWOOD — Capitol Records and 
Vee Jay Records have reached a set- 
tlement in their law suits over rights 
to release Beatles records in the 
United States. Joint announcement of 
the out-of-court settlement was made 
here today by both companies. 

In reaching settlement, neither 
Capitol nor Vee Jay conceded that 
the legal position of the other was 
right. However, at the suggestion of 
the court, both firms agreed to at- 
tempt a settlement. Negotiations for 
the settlement were concluded in Hol- 
lywood late last night by Robert E. 
Carp, VP and General Counsel for 
Capitol, and Mark Sands and Jay 
Lasker of Vee Jay. 

Under, the terms of the agreement, 
Vee Jay accepted a license from 
Capitol to sell its Beatles product and 
must pay Capitol royalties, including 


a substantial payment for the Beatles 
royalties to date and a licensing fee 
for the future. 

The effect of the settlement is to 
cancel the temporary injunction 
which Capitol had obtained against 
Vee Jay in the Circuit Court of Cook 
County, Illinois. The temporary in- 
junction had been stayed pending an 
interlocutory appeal to the Illinois 
Appellate Court. On March 19, the 
Appellate Court sustained the orig- 
inal issuance of the temporary in- 
junction based upon the pleadings. 

Whether or not the agreement en- 
ables Vee Jay to release future dates 
by the Beatles could not be officially 
determined, since execs of both labels 
declared when contacted that they 
could not elaborate on their joint an- 
nouncement. 


Expect Capitol Of Canada To Stop 
Producing Beatles Singles Not in U.S. 


NEW YORK— Capitol of Canada 
Beatles disks, available to anyone 
who was enterprising enough to 
make contact with Canada for such 
merchandise, will cease crossing the 
border into the U.S. 

According to reports from the 
people who had been purchasing the 
Canadian goods for distribution in 
America, they have been informed 
that Capitol of Canada will discon- 
tinue pressing disks (both in Canada 
and America) which Capitol of 
America is not issuing. 

The tightening of availability of 
such product was definitely felt last 
week by users of the Capitol of Can- 
ada goods. Until last week, Capitol 
of Canada pressed single versions of 
the Beatles “Love Me Do,” “All My 
Lovin’,” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” 
none of which were available as sin- 
gles through Capitol of America. 

It was originally rumored that 
Capitol of Canada would prevent 
shipments across the border of its 
singles. But upon further investiga- 
tion, it appears as though production 

Epic Adds 3rd 
Dave Clark Single 

NEW YORK — Three is not a crowd 
where Dave Clark Five singles are 
concerned. 

The hot English group, already in 
the top 10 charts with two separate 
singles releases for Epic — “Glad All 
Over,” their U.S. debut, and the re- 
cently issued “Bits & Pieces,” are 
now represented with a third single 
from Epic, — “Do You Love Me” and 
“Chaquita.” 

Both sides stem from the group’s 
first U.S. LP, “Glad All Over.” In 
addition to their three Epic dates, 
the Congress label has just issued a 
master by the group called “I Knew 
It All The Time.” 

The Dave Clark Five will make 
their second visit to the U.S. on May 
24. On May 29 and 30, they will be 
starring at Carnegie Hall and on 
May 31 they will appear for the third 
time on the Ed Sullivan TV’er, where 
all good English rocksters go when 
they first hit these shores. 

Their return to the U.S. also calls 
for a 16-city, cross-country concert 
tour. 


of such merchandise will completely 
cease. 

Capitol execs would not confirm 
this report. 

It was also indicated that Capitol 
of Canada would not issue future re- 
leases that were not being made 
available simultaneously in America, 
although this also could not be con- 
firmed. 


London Starts Drive 
To Put Caterina Valente 
On The Pop Singles Map 



NEW YORK — London Records is out 
to establish international pop song- 
stress Caterina Valente as a big 
singles market factor. 

Already a top-selling artist at the 
label as an LP performer, she just 
cut a single that will signal the start 
of the campaign. One of the tunes, 
“When In Rome,” was written for her 
by Jerry Bock, who with Sheldon 
Harnick wrote the Pulitzer Prize- 
winning musical, “Fiorello!,” “Tender- 
loin” and “She Loves Me.” Flip is the 
Rodgers & Hart standard, “With A 
Song In My Heart.” 

The performer is currently in the 
U.S., having just completed a stand 
at the Persian Room in New York. 
This week (14), she opens a six-w 7 eek 
engagement at the Desert Inn in Las 
Vegas. Over the past five weeks, she 
has been receiving solid coverage 
from national magazines and news- 
papers.

Kaplan & Schwartz 
Exit Cameo 

PHILADELPHIA — Herman Kaplan, 
sales manager of Cameo-Parkway 
Records, and “Red” Schwartz, na- 
tional promotion manager of the label, 
last week resigned from their posts. 

According to Harry Chipetz, C-P 
general manager, the Kaplan- 
Schwartz moves were the result of 
a major reorganization within the 
C-P Corp. Chipetz described the split 
as amicable and said that the duties 
of Kaplan and Schwartz would be 
temporarily assumed by other mem- 
bers of the C-P organization. 

Both Kaplan and Schwartz had no 
comment as to future affiliations but 
did indicate that they both had a num- 
ber of offers and were examining all 
possibilities before making a decision.

England's G.R.R.A. 

LONDON — The 1964 Gramophone 
Record Retailers’ Association confer- 
ence and exhibition opened at Lon- 
don’s New Ambassadors Hotel on 
April 5th. Alterations to the hotel in 
process during the 1963 meeting had 
been completed, and exhibitors and 
visiting public found the amenities 
and layout vastly improved. 

Dr. D. A. Sabin, Chairman of The 
G.R.R.A., opened the conference by 
welcoming members from all over 
England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. 
He commented on a happy and en- 
couraging year’s trade since the last 
conference, and gave the first mention 
to the shadow of the Government’s 
currently proposed legislation for the 
abolition of resale price maintenance 
which hung heavily over the confer- 
ence and speaker’s words. Mr. Sabin 
also mentioned the joint record coun- 
cil composed of manufacturers, dis- 
tributors and retailers which has held 
three fruitful meetings to date, and 
which he saw as a favourable forerun- 
ner of a permanent council for the 
record industry. He expressed the 
G.R.R.A.’s interest, support and active 
role in the discussions of the joint rec- 
ord council.

Pick of the Week 

I 

1 

Pick of the Week 


“THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU” (1:55) 

[M. Witmark & Sons ASCAP — Noble] 

“I WONDER (IF YOUR LOVE WILL EVER BELONG TO ME)” 
(2:20) [Silmo BMI — K.&.T. Goodloe, Jones, Munson, McGinnis] 
RICK NELSON (Decca 31612) 

The songster, who’s coming off with another big item (“For You”) in 
his current string of revitalizing the oldies, should easily continue 
the habit with his up-dating of “The Very Thought Of You.” Jimmie 
Haskell’s top teen stomp-a-cha-cha showcase perfectly compliments 
ear-arresting multi-track vocal. Also keep close tabs on the thumping, 
Latin-beat-like undercut, “I Wonder.” It, too, has the chart goods. 


“I’M WATCHING MY WATCH” “I RISE, I FALL” (2:15) 

(2:15) [Natson, Marimba ASCAP [Tod ASCAP — Hampton] 

— Sherman, Weiss] 

JOHNNY TILLOTSON (MGM 13232) 

The very pleasing vocal stylings of Johnny Tillotson are a cinch to 
make this release a double-barreled follow-up to his most recent chart- 
maker, “Worried Guy.” They’re two heartfelt romancers, the bouncy 
toe-tapper, “I’m Watching My Watch” and the up tempo cha cha beat, 
“I Rise, I Fall” that the songster delivers in money-making finesse. 
Bill McElhiney’s ork-choral showcase is first-rate on both ends. 


“THE LONELIEST NIGHT” (2:17) [Acuff-Rose BMI— Mathis, Al] 
“I’M NOT FREE” (2:22) [Red Stick-Crazy Cajun BMI — Houston] 
DALE & GRACE (Montel 928) 

With “I’m Leaving It Up To You” and “Stop And Think It Over” 
tucked away under their smash belts, Dale & Grace bid fair to make 
it three top-ten’ers in-a-row with “The Loneliest Night.” It’s another 
similarly-styled beat-ballad hip-swinger that the twosome puts across 
with telling effect. Coupler’s a complete change-of-pace jump beat 
opus. 


“I’M CONFESSIN’ (THAT I LOVE “TEA FOR TWO” (2:28) [Harms 
YOU)” (2:07) [Bourne ASCAP — ASCAP— Youmans, Caesar] 
Neiburg, Daugherty, Reynolds] 

NINO TEMPO & APRIL STEVENS (Atco 6294) 

The Tempo-Stevens combo is a sure bet to hit paydirt once again as 
they turn in two more top, bring-back-the-oldies stints. One half, 
“I’m Confessin’,” finds the artists in the rock-a-cha-cha groove that 
they made popular. The other end’s a fascinating, rock-a-samba-like 
refitting of “Tea For Two.” Great Jimmie Haskell arrangements on 
this pick ’em pairing. 


“I KNEW IT ALL THE TIME” (2:15) [Al Gallico BMI— Murray] 
“THAT’S WHAT I SAID” (3:18) 

[Peter Maurice ASCAP — Clark, Ryan] 

THE DAVE CLARK FIVE (Congress 212) 

The red-hot English group, currently burning up the charts with 
their “Glad All Over” and “Bits And Pieces” Epic sessions, pop up 
on the Congress label this time out. Tune to watch is “I Knew It All 
The Time,” an intriguing, gospel-flavored jumper with exciting per- 
cussive bits. On “That’s What I Said” has the boys in a ‘pull-out-all- 
the-stops’ groove. 


“ONE GIRL” (3:07) 

[Keetch, Caesar, Dino, Rittenhouse BMI — Meade, Russell] 

“A QUIET PLACE” (2:22) [Rittenhouse BMI— Meade, Bell] 
GARNETT MIMMS & THE ENCHANTERS (United Artists 715) 

As usual Mimms & Co. are in winning beat-ballad form as they 
carve, out another chart-contending UA stanza. Top side, tabbed “One 
Girl,” is a pulsating romantic opus that the performers wring every 
ounce of emotion out of. Superb Garry, Sherman arrangement. 
Reverse etching’s an attractive, Latin beat ‘message tune’ tagged “A 
Quiet Place,” that can also make it big. 


“NOMAD” (2:51) [Derry BMI— Brubeck] 

“SUMMER SONG” (2:14) [Derry BMI— Brubeck] 

LOUIS ARMSTRONG & DAVE BRUBECK (Columbia 77274) 

Louis Armstrong, who is presently riding high with his “Hello, 
Dolly” stanza on Kapp, could well go the hitsville route with this 
Columbia teaming-up with Dave Brubeck tabbed “Nomad.” Tune is a 
Jazzy Oriental-flavored romantic novelty essayed with good humor 
by the vet chanter and orkster. Coupler, “Summer Song,” is a slow- 
moving legit-styled ballad which spotlights the pianist’s first-rate 
keyboard artistry. 



“THREE WINDOW COUPE” (1:51) 

[Screen Gems, Columbia BMI — Berry, Christian 
“HOT ROD U.S.A.” (2:24) [T.M. BMI— Darin, Melcher] 

THE RIP CHORDS (Columbia 43035) 

The Rip Chords should quickly zoom back up smash lists with this 
powerful follow-up to “Hey Little Cobra.” This time, they’re riding 
with a “Three Window Coupe” that’s loaded with the thumping, 
coin-catching sounds of “Cobra.” and “Drag City,” etc. More of the 
same potent, tailored-for-teens hot rod stuff on the bottom lid. Two- 
sided sales dynamite here. 


“SOMETHING YOU GOT BABY” (2:24) 

[Tune-Kel BMI — Kenner, Domino] 

“IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS” (2:25) 

[Anatole BMI — Domino] 

FATS DOMINO (ABC-Paramount 10545) 

The ‘Fat Man’ is back with another power-packed chart contender. 
This time it’s a pounding, big-sounding rock-a-rhythm ditty, tabbed 
“Something You Got Baby,” that Fats and the instrumentalists sock 
out with loads of appeal. Terrific Bill Justis arrangement. Chanter 
also turns in a first rate shuffle-rhythm job on the swingin’ underlid. 


“AGAIN (2:34) [Robbins ASCAP — Cochran, Newman] 

“HOW LONG DARLING” (2:57) [Lois BMI— Brown] 

JAMES BROWN (King 5876) 

James Brown has been running extremely hot recently and this top- 
notch item, “Again,” cut during his days with King should quickly 
develop into a best-seller. The tune is a slow-moving, shuffle-beat pop- 
blues lament with a nostalgic while-back sound sold with authority by 
the songster. On the flip, “How Long Darling,” Brown dishes-up a 
funky, traditional, low-down r&b weeper with a contagious repeating riff. 


“CALDONIA” (2:44) [Cherio BMI— Moore] 

“EVIL” (2:32) [Tryble BMI— Wright] 

JAMES BROWN (Smash 3) 

The vet pop-r&b hit-maker kicks off his career on Smash with an 
ultra-commercial item tagged “Caldonia.” Tune is a rollicking, chorus- 
backed handclapper which effectively utilizes the “cut live” technique. 
Side boasts an interesting mid-deck recitation. The attractive coupler, 
“Evil,” is a traditional funky blueser essayed with feeling and verve 
by Brown. 


“SWING” (2:15) [H. Jamiph BMI— Jamiph] 

“A GIRL NAMED ARLENE” (2:05) 

[Bright Tunes BMI — Margo, Margo, Medress, Siegel] 

THE TOKENS (B.T. Puppy 500) 

The Tokens can have one of their most important chart dates since 
“The Lion Sleeps Tonight” as a result of this debut stint on the new 
B.T. Puppy lable-handled by the Jubilee set-up. Side to watch is “Swing,” 
a very exciting, rock-a-mambo affair that the fellas and their musical 
backing belt out in ultra-commercial manner. Watch it take off. Under- 
cut’s an inviting shuffle-beat-ballad romancer devoted to “A Girl Named 
Arlene.” 


“WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?— PART ONE” (2:33) 
[Avant Garde ASCAP — Knox, Kirkpatrick] 

“WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?— PART TWO” (2:30) 
[Avant Garde ASCAP — Knox, Kirkpatrick] 

JIMMY SMITH (Verve 10314) 

Jazz organist Jimmy Smith takes a dramatic musical hint on “Who’s 
Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? Part One,” which is tabbed after the current 
click Broadway straight-play. The tune is a hard-driving, full ork-backed 
funky item with some clever, kookie special effects. Smith continues in 
his professional ways on the flip, which is the logical continuation of 
the top side. 


Newcomer Picks 


“FOOT STOMPIN’ (2:25) [Smbols BMI— Collins] 

“ROUTE 66” (2:30) [Screen Gems-Columbia BMI — Troup] 

THE UNDERBEATS (Garrett 4004) 

The Underbeats, a group of newcomers to the Garrett label, can get off 
winging the first time out. Fellas are in money-making teen form, both 
on the vocal and instrumental end, as they carve out a partytime delight, 
appropriately tagged “Foot Stompin’.” On the flip the crew zips thru a 
sock-rock refitting of the oldie.

for the first second but then takes on 
an originality which could rocket it up 
the charts. 

(B) “TORCH” (2:14) [A1 Gallico 
—BMI— Sherrill] 


THE MADISONS (Limelight 3018) 
• “BAD BABOON” (1:54) 
[Westbound-M. M. Cole — BMI 
— Jones] The Madisons introduce a 
new dance, “The Bad Baboon,” with 
extreme effectiveness. A conglomera- 
tion of commercial gimmicks create 
a definite air of excitement for this 
up tempo number. Eye this one. 
(B-f) “BECAUSE I GOT YOU” 
(2:03) [Westbound-M. M. Cole 
—BMI— Roth] 


WALLACE BROTHERS (Sims 174) 
• “PRECIOUS WORDS” (2:25) 
[English & Tuneglow BMI — 
Robinson] The Wallace Bros., who 
clicked last time out with “Faith,” 
seem sure to garner plenty of spins 
with this slow-moving, shuffle-beat 
blues weeper in which they make a 
potent plea for romance. 

(B-f) “YOU’RE MINE” (1:55) 
[Tuneglow BMI — Simons] 


ALLISON GARY (Royo 701) 

• “DARLING” (2:26) [Mia 
Sola-Cotillion BMI — Houston, 
Warwick, Nathan] Allison Gary 
teams up with the Burners on this 
first-rate organ-backed slow-moving 
r&b tearjerker which effectively 
builds in some interesting chromatic 
developments. Atlantic distributes. 
(B-f) “BURN” (2:20) [Mia Sola- 
Cotillion BMI — Paterno, Na- 
than] 


CINDERS (Original Sound 43) 

© “I’LL FOLLOW YOU” (2:06) 

[Drive-In & Rickland BMI — 
Page] Gals have a strong offering on 
this side, done up in a shuffle-jump 
beat manner. Side has the right in- 
gredients to make it a hit. 

(B) “THE STORY” [Drive-In & 

House Of Frotuen BMI — Mo-

tommy tucker 





The pros of the performing arts 
have now discovered Jack Jones, and 
the result is that he is appearing on 
top network television in an unpre- 
cedented lineup such as the Judy Gar- 
land, Bell Telephone, Ed Sullivan, 
Jimmy Dean, Bob Hope and Jack Parr 
shows. The general public is right 
now on the verge of making the same 
discovery as the professionals, and no 
doubt this turn of events will sky- 
rocket the Kapp songster into a posi- 
tion of major prominence. 

The tall (six feet one) son of singer 
Allan Jones was born in Los Angeles 
on Jan. 14 approximately 25 years 
ago. He attended University High 
School where he excelled in sports 
such as baseball and track. 

When the military decided they 
would like to have Jack’s services, he 
entered the Air Force. While on a 
short leave he cut “Lollipops and 
Roses” which won the NARAS Award 
as the “Best Solo Vocal Performance 
— Male of 1961.” In the following 
years the artist hit with such items as 
“A Lot Of Livin’ To Do,” “Call Me 
Irresponsible,” “Wives And Lovers” 
and “Love With The Proper Stran- 
ger.” 

There seems to be no question about 
the future of this talented young man. 
He’s on the move and his direction 
leads straight to stardom. 


Pete Drake 



Pete Drake, who is currently riding 
high on the charts with “Forever” on 
Smash, was born thirty-one years ago 
in Augusta, Georgia. His first job, a 
clerk in a grocery store provided him 
with an opportunity to save enough 
money to buy his first guitar. His in- 
troduction to music was of necessity 
on a cheaply-made mail order instru- 
ment, so Pete saved for the next two 
years until he was able to buy the 
steel guitar he dreamed about. 

Encouraged by his two brothers, 
both musicians, Pete won his first 
professional job as a musician on 
WLMA-Atlanta while still a teenager. 
In 1959, his talent recognized through- 
out the south, he decided to move to 
Nashville, to work with the recording 
artists who came to the Music City to 
wax their recordings. Soon he was 
playing one-shot dates on the Grand 
Ole Opry. With appearance on the 
Opry his popularity grew until the 
management tabbed him for regular 
Saturday night dates with the show. 
The rest is_ history. 


Don’t tell KDKA-Pittsburgh’s 
Sterling Yates to go fly a kite — be- 
cause he will. In fact, the deejay 
recently enlisted support for his kite 
flying activities from among his many 
listeners, encouraged them to join 
him at the kite-flying site, awarded 
prizes for the best kite flights, and 
broadcast the festivities over KDKA. 

WABC-New York celebrated April 
Fool’s Day by fooling spinner Dan 
Ingraham who is heard regularly 
from 2 to 6 PM. Ingraham supposedly 
went on the air at 2 PM and through 
planned errors of engineering, wrong 
records, station promos for the wrong 
station (WINS-New York), wrong 
transcribed commercials, studio noises 
and what-not to make a deejay tear 
out his hair — he was fooled. Unknown 
to him, his 2 and 2:30 PM calamities 
were not on the air because in an- 
other studio Boby Dayton was 
smoothly doing his first half-hour of 
the Ingraham air stanza. A sur- 
prised and frustrated Dan Ingraham 
was put back on the air at 2:30 PM 
and his botched up session was re- 
played on tape so the audience could 
listen to the horrors Ingraham went 
through during the first April Fool’s 
segment. 

KPIX-San Francisco was recipient 
of a special “Certificate of Recogni- 
tion” from the National Conference 
of Christians and Jews at a luncheon 
held recently in New York City. The 
award was presented by Dr. Lewis 
Webster Jones, president of the 
NCCJ, to Mitchell M. Benson, director 
of public affairs for the Westing- 
house Broadcasting Company. The na- 
tion-wide contest, known as the Na- 
tional Mass Media Brotherhood 
Awards Program, selected the San 
Francisco Group W station for the 
only TV outlet award in the west. 

Dick Starr, who spins ‘em on 
WFUN-Miami, sends along word that 
March was a star-studded month in 
Miami. Visiting celebrities at the out- 
let during the month included Connie 
Francis, Frankie Avalon, Neil Sedaka, 
Jerry Lee Kewis, Conway Twitty, 
Bobby Vinton, Brian Hyland, April 
Stevens and Nino Tempo. WFUN’s 
top-rated evening air personality, 
Greg Warren, also landed an “exclu- 
sive” ten minute interview with Dave 
Clark of the Dave Clark Five. The 
interview was done via transatlantic 
telephone from Miami to London. 

WOKY received the OK last week 
from the FCC to increase its trans- 
mitting power to 5,000 watts. The 
station has been operating with a 
power of 1,000 watts since going on 
the air in 1950. The Commission’s 
ruling followed a lengthy hearing 
resulting in a decision favoring the 
Bartell Broadcasting’s petition for in- 
creased power. 

WLOL-Minneapolis’ Jerry Telser, 
Bill Bennett, George Murphy and 
Carson Rennie recently conducted a 
live broadcast from a local Kinney 
shoe store at Apache Plaza. People 
came, saw and bought Kinney shoes 
and the whole affair racked up as a 
big success. A lucky number game 
was developed by WLOL’s promotion 
department and over 200 people were 
waiting at 6:30 for the broadcast 


to begin so they could enter the 
game. An estimated 600 people came 
through the store in the course of 
two and a half hours. 

WMCA-New York deejay Ed Baer 
and his wife Pearl are the proud 
parents of a boy, Jeffrey Henry. The 
new dad is the host of the outlet’s 
Sunday morning 6 to 12 AM stanza. 
This is the first child for the Baers. 

Johnny Canton, program supervisor 
of KUDL-Kansas City, infos word 
that the station has started a new 
Kuddletest, more or less in tune with 
the times. It’s called “Batter Up” 
and features the baseball skills of 
the station’s deejay staff. Every time 
they announce on the air that it’s 
time to play “Batter Up,” they also 
invite listeners to call in. The first 
person to call is given the opportunity 
to guess what the jockey batter is 
going to do — single, double, triple, 
home run or make an out. After the 
selection is made, they air the play 
and if the person guesses correctly, 
he wins. 

For the second year in a row, the 
new staff of WINS-New York has 
been selected to receive the Sigma 
Delta Chi Radio Reporting Award for 
“distinguished service in the field of 
radio reporting.” WINS was selected 
from a field of a thousand entries. 
No other station, network or in- 
dividual has ever received more than 
one Sigma Chi Delta Award since the 
inception of the award 18 years ago. 

The Star Stations, KOIL-Omaha, 
KSIN-Portland and WIFE-Indiana- 
polis, broadcast to the nation the first 
eyewitness report of the Alaska earth- 
quake. Early Sat. morning, March 
28th, KOIL news director, Bill Addi- 
son, made contact with Jean Chance 
of the Alaska Radio Network, who 
gave an eyewitness report of the 
initial jolts caused by the quake and 
the immediate effects of the disaster, 
such as her personal viewing of the 
collapse of the J. C. Penny Building. 
Following this report from Anchor- 
age, communications were completely 
cut off and KOIL found itself with 
the only eyewitness report available 
at that time in the nation. In addition 
to its immediate broadcast by KSIN 
and WIFE, KOIL fed United Press 
International audio. They then fed the 
audio description to hundreds of radio 
stations across the U.S. 

WIP-Philadelphia personality Joe 
McCauley, could not be satisfied with 
being one of the Quaker City’s most 
listened airman. He has now sent hi3 
voice galloping off to Broadway as 
part of the Steve Lawrence hit vehi- 
cle, “What Makes Sammy Run?” Mc- 
Cauley plays a 1940 sportscaster in 
Act I, Scene II, belting out descrip- 
tions of a Giants-Dodgers battle with 
the authority of a Jim Learning. 

VITAL STATISTICS: 

Buddy McGregor, is now airing 
the platters on KNUZ-Houston. . . . 
Fred Walters is a new add to the 
WIP-Philadelphia news staff. . . . 
Glen A. Powers exits his air niche 
on WMOC-Chattanooga to assume 
similar duties on WSGN-Birmingham. 
... Ed Farni given the green light 
as general manager of KTCR-Min- 
neapolis.

THE BEATLES’ 

SECOND ALBUM 


iwtsm 

mim 



“THE BEATLES’ SECOND ALBUM”— Capitol 
ST 2080 

The Beatles, with a plethora of best-selling sin- 
gles and LP’s running rampant on the charts, 
come up with their second album entry on Capitol 
— a package that has to top the charts in short 
order. The lads lash out with “Roll Over Beetho- 
ven,” and follow thru with such chart-riders as 
“She Loves You” and “Thank You Girl.” Still the 
hottest group around, there’s loads of loot to be 
made with this one. 


“FUNNY GIRL”— Original Cast— Capitol SVAS 
2059 

All facets of Barbra Streisand’s art come vividly 
to life in this original-cast LP of her performance 
as the late Fanny Brice in “Funny Girl.” Jule 
Styne & Bob Merrill have given the show a va- 
ried, highly singable score, which is right-as-rain 
in capturing the sound-of-music of Fanny Brice’s 
vaudeville hey-day. And since everyone agrees 
that Barbra is Fanny Brice incarnate, the record- 
ing is a triumph of nostalgia, and then some. As 
Barbra Streisand, “Fanny” has had three giant 
LP’s for Columbia, which has loaned her to Cap- 
itol for the cast LP. Thank you Columbia, thank 
you Capitol. 



“TODAY” — New Christy Minstrels — Columbia 
CL 2159 

The new Christy Minstrels dish-up an interesting 
program of tunes (written by Randy Sparks) 
which will be featured in the soon-to-be-released 
Glenn Ford MGM starrer, “Advance To The 
Rear.” The flick marks the first time that original 
folk songs have ever been utilized in any film. 
The group’s distinctive brand of harmony and 
counterpoint are firmly evidenced on a host of 
goodies including “Company Of Cowards,” “Any- 
thing Love Can Buy” and “Today.” Album enough 
built-in success ingredients to reach the charts in 
no time flat. 




THE. FALL 
OF THE 
ROMAN 
EMPIRE 



“THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE”— Orig. 
Soundtrack — Columbia OL6060 
Dimitri Tiomkin conducts a 110-piece symphony 
orchestra on his film score for the new Samuel 
Bronston production, “The Fall Of The Roman 
Empire.” The composer-conductor includes ex- 
cerpts in their proper dramatic order highlighted 
by the main theme, “The Fall Of Love,” which is 
currently getting attention from a variety of art- 
ists. Concurrent release of the flick should spark 
plenty of sales interest in this soundtrack etching 
from Columbia. 



“BROADWAY SOLO GUITAR”— Laurindo Al- 
meida — Capitol T 2063 

Laurindo Almeida, who has earned many laurels 
in the past for his versatile guitar stylings, offers 
up a hauntingly beautiful program of evergreen 
and recent vintage show tunes essayed in the 
classical style sans orchestral backing. The vet 
guitarist shines as he delivers “My Funny Val- 
entine,” “As Long As He Needs Me” and “Smoke 
Gets In Your Eyes.” Delightful listening through- 
out. 


“CHUCK BERRY’S GREATEST HITS”— Chess 
LP 1485 

Chuck Berry, who is currently clicking in both 
the pop and r&b departments with “Nadine,” is 
effectively showcased in this new Chess LP out- 
ing singing a bevy of his past chart triumphs. 
The songster’s rhythmic, hard-driving vocal style 
carries him in fine stead on “School Days,” “Oh, 
Baby Doll” and “Roll Over Beethoven.” One of 
the best albums that Berry has cut in quite a 
while. 


“HANK WILLIAMS JR. SINGS THE SONGS 
OF HANK WILLIAMS”— MGM SE 4213 
Hank Williams, Jr. makes a first-rate LP bow 
performance on this new MGM release in which 
he offers a sentimental bevy of tunes penned and 
sung by his late father. The young chanter has 
a deep, rich, wide-range baritone voice which is 
aptly suited to such “gems” as “Long Gone Lone- 
some Blues,” “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and “There’ll 
Be No Teardrops Tonight.” Album should sky- 
rocket. 



“LET’S HAVE A PARTY” — Rivieras — U.S.A. 
102 

The Rivieras, who recently exploded on the pop 
music scene with their best-selling recording of 
“California Sun” (included in this set), unleash 
their potent vocal and instrumental talents full- 
blast on this top-notch rockin’ LP. The guys are 
in fine form as they dish-up rhythmic arrange- 
ments of “Danny Boy,” “Church Key” and their 
current click of “Little Donna.” Plenty of poten- 
tial here. 



“MORE SOUNDS OF WASHINGTON 
SQUARE” — Village Stompers — Epic LN 24090 
The Village Stompers are back again, once more 
utilizing their infectious folk-Dixie style on an 
appealing collection of standards and new mate- 
rial. The instrumental crew’s distinctive brand of 
harmony and counterpoint is firmly evidenced on 
top-flight readings of “Gotta Travel On,” 
“Frankie And Johnny” and “Mountain Greenery.” 
Eye the disk for rapid acceptance. 



“THE WOMENFOLK”— RCA Victor LSP 2832 
The Womenfolk, one of the most dynamic groups 
to come on the music scene in some time, make 
their wax debut on RCA Victor with this package 
of powerful vocals guaranteed to catapult them 
into the national spotlight. The gals (five of 
them) display sure-fire vocal and instrumental 
talent throughout as they romp through such 
ear-arresting items as “Don’t You Rock ’Em 
Daddy-O,” “Para Bailar La Bamba” and “Love 
Come A-Tricklin’ Down.” The set is a real chart 
threat. 



“AIN’T THAT A SHAME”— Pat Boone— Dot 
DLP 25573 

Pat Boone, with a long string of money-making 
LP’s to his credit, tags this latest offering on Dot 
after one of his earliest hits, “Ain’t That A 
Shame.” The actor-chanter comes up with some 
warm-voiced treatments of eleven other ballads 
and easy-paced uptempo tunes including “Sun- 
day, Monday Or Always,” “In My Little Red 
Book” and “Where Are You.” Boone fans will 
surely like it. 


POP BEST BETS 



“FOREVER”— Pete Drake— Smash MG27053 
Pete Drake cashes in on the success of his chart- 
riding single, “Forever,” to tag this Smash al- 
bum. The steel guitarist, traditionally a specialist 
in country music, is scoring a phenomenal pop 
success with the single and should find the same 
sort of acceptance for this LP. Best bets here are 
“Forever,” “Melody Of Love” and “Red Sails In 
The Sunset.” 



“THE WONDERFUL VERA”— Vera Lynn— Lon- 
don PS 359 

Vera Lynn has been delighting listeners the world 
over for more than two decades with her warm 
and rich ballad stylings, and on this new LP en- 
try from London the lark gives further evidence 
of her superb handling of lyric and melody. Be- 
ginning -with the currently popular, “I Wish You 
Love,” the songstress follows with emotion- 
packed readings of “With These Hands,” “Por- 
trait Of My Love” and “Mr. Wonderful.” A po- 
tent vocal entry that should get plenty of air at- 
tention. 



“YOUNG MAN’S FANCY” — Bobby Gordon — 
Decca DL 74507 

Ace clarinetist Bobby Gordon is in a warm, nos- 
talgic, romantic mood on this new Decca LP out- 
ing of evergreens. While backed by a lush strings 
section, Gordon displays his lyrical, easy-going 
instrumental style on such old favorites as “Whis- 
pering,” “How About Me” and “Little White 
Lies.” Deejays should find plenty of program- 
mable material here.

“THE VOICE OF AFRICA” — Miriam Makeba — 
RCA Victor LSP 2845 

Miriam Makeba is obviously out to please her 
countless fans with this appealing set of African 
and West Indian folk tunes from RCA Victor. 
The lark’s power-packed lyrical voice is superbly 
spotlighted on top-flight readings of “Willow 
Song,” “Lovely Lies” and “Come To Glory.” A 
standout achievement. 



“TOP TEN HITS BY ORIGINAL ARTISTS”— 
Wyncote W9007 

Here’s a collection of while-back hits that saw 
plenty of sales and deejay action the first time 
around. Bobby Rydell, Chubby Checker, Dee Dee 
Sharp, The Orlons and the Dovells could pull 
plenty of coin on this re-issue on Wyncote (a 
Cameo-Parkway subsid) with such biggies as 
“Wild One,” “Wah-Watusi” and “Do The New 
Continental.” 





“LONELY HOURS”— Sarah Vaughan— Roulette 
SR 52104 

Sarah Vaughan focuses her musical attention on 
a fine sampling of after-hours blues laments on 
this excellent full ork-backed disk from Roulette. 
The songstress creates some highly-personal 
melodic variations on “Lonely Hours,” “I’ll Never 
Be The Same” and “You’re Driving Me Crazy.” 
Deejays should find plenty of spinnable material 
here.

“THE CRICKETS”— Liberty LST 7351 
Although ‘Liverpool Sound’ groups are the cur- 
rent rage, the Crickets offer proof-positive that 
Yank crews are perfectly capable of wailing in 
the same rhythmic, hard-driving idiom as their 
British cousins on this top-notch rockin’ set from 
Liberty. The boys really swing up a storm on “I 
Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Calif ornir. Sun” 
and “You Can’t Be In-Between.” Teen record- 
buyers should come out in force for the set. 



“INVITATION”— Peter Duchin— Decca DL 74471 
Here’s a delightfully appealing romantic instru- 
mental offering spotlighting the keyboard artis- 
try of Peter Duchin along with his lush string- 
oriented ork. The youthful 88 ’er has chosen an

CHICAGO — SESAC’s celebrity suite 
at last week’s NAB confab boasted 
a host of well-known recording stars 
and personalities. In the top pic Duke 
Ellington (left) , who performed for 
the delegates in attendance, is shown 
with SESAC’s Joe Quinn after having 
received two awards from Down Beat 
Magazine. One award honored the 
vet musician’s ork as the finest in 
jazzdom while the other toasted El- 
lington as the best jazz arranger- 
conductor for 1963. In the bottom 
photo Mercury’s Margie Singleton is 
shown entertaining in the associa- 
tion’s celeb suite. 


Two Seasons & Kasha 
To Work Together 

NEW YORK — Bob Gaudio and Frank 
Valli, two of the Four Seasons, have 
teamed up with A1 Kasha, vet pro- 
ducer, and the trio will work together 
in production of masters, manage- 
ment, etc., as well as independently. 

Gaudio is composer of such hits as 
“Sherry,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Big 
Girls Don’t Cry,” “Dawn,” “Ronnie,” 
“Shorts Shorts” and a host of others. 
He and Valli, the Season’s lead vocal- 
ist, have production arrangements 
with Philips, Smash, Decca and WB. 

Kasha has indie agreements with 
WB, 20th, Imperial, Tamla-Motown, 
Philips and Smash. 

The trio feels that in uniting forces, 
as well as retaining independent affili- 
ations, their organization can be much 
more flexible and will afford them 
an avenue for great expansion. 

Mike Kelly has joined the trio and 
will supervise management of the 
artists handled by the producers. He 
will also supervise the trio’s publish- 
ing operation. They are now develop- 
ing a stable of songwriters and have 
already signed Sandy Linzer, a co- 
writer of “Dawn.” 

A major search for talent is also 
being instituted by the group. To date 
they have pacted a group called the 
Forevers, whose first release bows 
this week on the Smash label. An- 
other act in the stable is Tobin 
Matthews.

The Womenfolk: Victor Gals On The Go 



NEW YORK— The Womenfolk, RCA 
Victor’s newest singing discoveries, 
have just completed a label-sponsored 
promotion tour geared to introduce 
the five young women to the disk-buy- 
ing public in an unusual, but highly 
effective manner. 

Traveling for two weeks in their 
own bus to nine major disk markets, 
the girls (Jean Amos, Leni Ashmore, 
Barbara Cooper, Judy Fine & Joyce 
James) made dozens of personal ap- 
pearances in department stores and 
clubs, and on radio and television sell- 
ing one product only — their own spe- 
cial brand of folk singing. For the 
Womenfolk, folk singing is an all- 
encompassing term; it comprises ele- 
ments of the blues, ballads, rock, and 
folk which runs the gamut from 
whimsical to tongue-in-cheek social

satire. Unlike many of their predeces- 
sors, the girls were not satisfied with 
the much abused lip-synch gimmick 
while their record played in the back- 
ground, but delivered in “live” per- 
formance the same talent qualities 
they offered on their new Victor al- 
bum, “The Womenfolk.” 

Accompanied by label promo exec 
Pat Kelleher, the Womenfolk adhered 
to a strict and strenuous schedule of 
performances on a tour which estab- 
lished, according to diskery execs, 
identity, excitement and sales. The 
proof of this excitement, said Kelle- 
her, was evidenced on Easter Satur- 
day at the Lazarus Department Store 
in Columbus, Ohio, where the girls 
gave three shows and sold 250 LP’s 
on the spot. Their appearance was 
heralded by a week of radio spot an- 
nouncements and point of sale ads 
throughout the store. 

In addition to performances at 
stores and distrib parties, the Women- 
folk appeared on the syndicated Mike 
Douglas TV’er from Cleveland, and 
the Ruth Lyons TV’er from Cincin- 
nati, and wherever possible, they ap- 
peared on local radio and TV pro- 
grams. 

“RCA Victor’s ability and willing- 
ness to build talented but unknown 
artists by means of intense promo- 
tional campaigns,” said Kelleher, “is 
mirrored in the successful disk career 
of Victor artists John Gary, Sergio 
Franchi, A1 Hirt, Ann-Margret, Peter 
Nero, Ethel Ennis and others.” 

That the trip was a huge success, 
remarked Kelleher, was attributed 
largely to the girls themselves; each 
one is a solo performer in her own 
right, and each one is an intelligent 
and capable spokeswoman for the 
group. 

RCA Victor has also released a 
single, “Little Boxes,” from their new 
album. 

In the pictures above, The Women- 
folk are pictured at performances 
during their two-week debut tour.

Connie's "Lady Valet" 

Is Coming To Market 

NEW YORK — Meet Connie Francis, 
the inventor. The star lark for the 
MGM label, reacting to necessity, has 
devised a “Lady Valet,” meant to hold 
a woman’s daily wardrobe, which is 
new in the production stages and will 
be marketed on May 15. 

In her new MGM film, “Looking 
For Love,” she is called upon to “in- 
vent” something to hang her clothes 
on because her film roommate (Susan 
Oliver) wouldn’t share the closet. The 
singer designed an indoor scarecrow, 
which the performer began to think 
of as being a practical item in an- 
other form. 

A collaboration with industrial de- 
signer Ezra Lapides resulted in the 
creation of a commercial equivalent of 
the film scarecrow, a steel, copper- 
coated and lacquered “Lady Valet.” 

Sales of the item will tie-in with 
MGM Records. When it’s purchased, 
a coupon will allow the customer to 
buy an LP by the artist for $1. 

Mogull Joins Dorsey 

NEW YORK — Steve Mogull has 
joined the professional dept, of Dor- 
sey Bros. Music, according to Herbert 
Wise, general manager. He joins the 
Dorsey operation following a stint 
with another pubbery, Shapiro-Bern- 
stein Music. 


Jimmy Dean In Cast Of 
CMA Detroit Package 

NEW YORK — It was learned last 
week that Jimmy Dean will join the 
cast for the Country Music Associa- 
tion (CMA) presentation to the De- 
troit Adcraft Club on April 17 — at 
which time the CMA board of direc- 
tors will be in the motor city for their 
second quarterly meeting of 1964. 

Dean, whose ABC-TV show has 
been renewed for next year, will be 
available for the country music pres- 
entation along with such top person- 
alities as CMA president Tex Ritter, 
Roy Clark, Sue Thompson, Harold 
Bradley and several other Nashville 
musicians, and a group of Nashville 
singers, including Helen Chance, Jan 
Crutchfield, Hershell Wigginton and 
Marijohn Wilkin. 

CMA board chairman Frances Pres- 
ton noted that the show will be pat- 
terned after the one presented to the 
New York Sales Executives’ Club last 
spring. The idea is to present the sell- 
ing power of country music to adver- 
tising executives of Detroit who rep- 
resent one of the largest group of 
advertising buyers in the world. The 
show will be produced by Joe Allison 
of Hollywood and Bradley will serve 
as associate producer. 

The board meeting will convene at 
9:30 AM on April 16 and continue 
through the morning of the 17th, ad- 
journing in time for the presentation 
to the Detroit Adcraft Club. Execu- 
tive director Jo Walker said some of 
the key topics to he discussed include 
the proposed Country Music Hall of 
Fame and Museum and fund-raising 
drive; a revision of the association’s 
newsletter; Country Music Month 
(Nov.); and other topics of impor- 
tance to the industry. Board members 
and officers are expected to attend 
from all parts of the country, and it 
is expected that the board will be well 
represented.

Ron Roessler as national field rep for 
the label in the sales department. 
Roessler will be calling on Roulette’s

rack merchandisers, one-stops and 
key accounts throughout the country. 
Roessler has already been working at 
his new post and is currently out in 
the field presenting the label's, new 
Spring program “A World’s Fair Of 
Entertainment” (see separate story). 

Roessler comes to Roulette with over 
five years experience in the record

Victor Premiere LP For 
Menotti # s Cantata 

NEW YORK — RCA Records has an- 
nounced plans to record a Boston 
Symphony Orchestra performance of 
Gian-Carlo Menotti’s new cantata, 
“Death of the Bishop of Brindisi” 
next fall. 

Erich Leinsdorf will direct the or- 
chestra, the Chorus Pro Musica and 
soloists George London, baritone, and 
Lili Chookasian, contralto. 

The work was given its world 
premiere in Cincinnati last year. 

The BO-minute composition tells 
the story of a crusade during the 13th 
century known as the “Children’s 
Crusade,” during which disaster 
strikes a ship carrying children to 
the Holy Land wars. The children 
had been blessed by the Bishop of 
Brindisi, and the drama unfolds in 
the form of a flashback to the event 
by the Bishop, now dying and trou- 
bled by a sense of guilt. 

The work will be coupled on the 
LP with a recording of Schonberg’s 
“Wood Dove Scene” from Gurre Lie- 
der, also with Lili Chookasian as the 
soloist.

A. Schroeder Music Sets Sights On '64 Expansion 


NEW YORK— The A. Schroeder Mu- 
sic operation is spreading its wings 
even further in wider coverage of the 
international and national scene in 
1964. 

Speaking of international moves, 
topper Schroeder reflects: “I believe 
we’re entering a new era of our indus- 
try, an era of international exchange 
requiring representation, which we 
have established, throughout the 
world. This provides us with a global 
network which enables us to exchange 
ideas and product concerning every 
phase of the music business whether 
it be music on records, in films, TV 
or theater.” In an aside, Schroeder 
says he expects to announce involve- 
ment in other major projects in each 
of the latter media shortly. 

Flick music-wide, the exec has al- 
ready picked-up some important 
soundtrack scores, two of them from 
France, including “War of the But- 
tons” and “Monsieur Lafayette.” His 
domestic acquisitions include “The 
Fool Killer,” Eli Landau’s production 
starring Tony Perkins, “Shock Cor- 
ridor,” Sam Fuller’s effort for Allied 
Artists release, and “Pyro,” an 
American-International production. 

In line with the firm’s growing in- 
terest in film and TV scores, an office 
has just been opened in Hollywood at 
8293 Sunset Blvd. Pacts, Schroeder 
revealed, have already been signed 
with film cleffers Bronislau Kaper 
and Pete Rugulo, with other similar 
tie-ups in the works. 

Back on the international scene, 
Schroeder is currently negotiating 
with French star Charles Aznavour 
to publish his songs in the U.S. Az- 
navour, a favorite as an actor-singer- 
writer, has penned hundreds of songs, 
but does not have any U.S. publish- 
ing affiliation. 

Aznavour recently had his second 
one-man show at Carnegie Hall. Just 
prior to the appearance, Schroeder 
feted him at his New York headquar- 


Dial "Dolly" 

NEW YORK — Prospective disk buy- 
ers can get a personal message from 
Carol Channing urging them to visit 
their dealers and pick up a copy of 
the RCA Victor original cast set of 
“Hello Dolly!” by dialing MU 9-8960 
in the New York area. 

After dialing this number callers 
will hear, “How do, this is Carol 
Channing — that’s I, me, or it. Thank 
you for calling. I did want you to 
know my new Broadway musical, 
“Hello Dolly,” yeh, you know it? Well 
anyway, it’s been recorded by RCA 
Victor; it has all the original cast 
and me, too. Why don’t you drop in 
and say hello to your record dealer. 
Happy listening friend.” 

The number has been disseminated 
in the New York Times. 


ters. A host of personalities from the 
entire entertainment industry were

NEW YORK — Show biz luminaries 
and press representatives gathered

1 Day Out, Capitol's 2nd 
Beatles LP Sells $1 Million 

HOLLYWOOD— “The Beatles’ Sec- 
ond Album,” issued nationally last 
Monday (6), accounted for over one 
million dollars’ worth of business 
(calculated at manufacturer’s price) 
on the very first day of release, ac- 
cording to Stan Gortikov, vice presi- 
dent & general manager of Capitol 
Records Distributing Corp. The Al- 
bum thus becomes the fastest-selling 
LP in the history of the Caoitol label. 

Capitol has already applied to the 
Record Industry Association of 
America (RIAA) for official certifi- 
cation of the album’s Gold Record 
status. The RIAA’s independent audit 
of Capitol’s sales books will be con- 
ducted at the label’s Billing Center 
in Scranton, Pa., on Friday (10). 

According to RIAA executive secre- 
tary Henry Brief, the time between 
release of “The Beatles’ Second 
Album” and Capitol’s application for 
Gold Record certification is the short- 
est in RIAA history. 


A lOth Anniversary: 
Haley's Date On 
"Rock Around The Clock" 

NEW YORK — Ten years ago — April 
12 to be exact — Bill Haley & His 
Comets walked into a studio in New 
York and cut a tune called “Rock 
Around The Clock,” which went on to 
become one of the first rock ’n roll 
songs to reach international fame. 
In 45 rpm sales alone, the song has 
sold some 14 million copies. The Haley 
version, the best-seller, was released 
on Decca Records. 

While there no longer is a signi- 
ficant factor in U.S. disk sales, Haley 
and His Comets are very popular in 
Spanish-speaking countries. Haley is 
married to a Mexican woman.

THE STARS SHINE ON COLPIX 




Temp. Injunction Issued 
Against Shad's "Tom Jones" 

NEW YORK — A New York Supreme 
Court judge granted a preliminary 
injunction last Wed. (8) enjoining the 
use of the cover sleeve on the new 
Theatre Productions’ LP, “Tom 
Jones.” 

United Artists Records filed suit 
against the label and its owner, Bobby 
Shad, contending the cover sleeve’s 
artwork led consumers to believe that 
they were buying the UA soundtrack 
of the hit film, “Tom Jones.” Shad’s 
“Jones” is an original disk musical 
version of the Henry Fielding classic. 

In granting the preliminary injunc- 
tion, Judge Irwin D. Davidson, stated: 

“When we examine the material as 
set up on plaintiff’s jacket and as set 
up on defendant’s jacket, there ap- 
pears a likelihood of the public being 
deceived into believing that defend- 
ant’s compositions have some connec- 
tion with the motion picture, ‘Tom 
Jones’, Plaintiff has presented a suf- 
ficient case to warrant the relief re- 
quested.” 

It was understood, however, that 
the matter would be settled this week 
with a change in artwork on the 
Theatre Productions’ “Tom Jones.” In 
its action, UA did not claim any in- 
fringement as far as material on the 
LP was concerned.

might help the other, establishing a 
line of communications so that each of 
our two industries can know what the 
other is thinking and doing and be 
able to plan together to meet the 
challenging days ahead.” 

For the most part of his talk, Brief 
established the “mutuality of interest 
that we share in recordings. . . .” and 
went on to cite how both industries 
have prospered “hand-in-hand” over 
the past 15 years. 


NARAS Grammy Finalists 

(Continued from page 8) 
folk recordings. 

Two boys and one girl singer share 
top honors with two vocal groups as 
possible Grammy winners for Best 
New Artist of the Year honors. John 
Gary, also cited for a Best Male Sing- 
ing Performance, Trini Lopez, Vikki 
Carr, the J’s with Jamie and the 
Swingle Singers are the five finalists. 

Up for Grammys in the important 
“Record of the Year” category are 
Mancini’s recording of “Days of 
Wine and Roses,” The Singing Nun’s 
“Dominique,” Barbra Streisand’s 
“Happy Days Are Here Again,” Ben- 
nett’s “I Wanna Be Around” and Jack 
Jones’ “Wives and Lovers.” 

Tabbed as finalists for the “Album 
of the Year” award are the Swingle 
Singers’ “Bach’s Greatest Hits,” “The 
Barbra Streisand Album,” Andy Wil- 
liams’ “Days of Wine and Roses,” A1 
Hirt’s “Honey in the Horn” and “The 
Singing Nun” album. 

Lined up with “Days of Wine and 
Roses” for “Best Song of the Year” 
honors are “Call Me Irresponsible,” 
“The Good Life,” “I Wanna Be 
Around” and “Wives and Lovers.” 

The actual Grammy Awards, be- 
stowed purely for outstanding artistic 
achievement, will be presented at 
simultaneous ceremonies in New York, 
Los Angeles and Chicago on the night 
of Tuesday, May 12, according to 
John Scott Trotter, National Presi- 
dent of the Academy. Members are 
currently filling in their ballots, which 
will be tabulated, as in past years, by 
the independent accounting firm of 
Haskins and Sells. 


Kapp Gets A 
Louis "Dolly” LP 


Hello, Dolly! i 
Louis Armstrong 



NEW YORK — Kapp Records is as- 
sured of an LP by Louis Armstrong 
that can tie-in with the performer’s 
smash single, “Hello, Dollly,” which 
finds the 64-year-old Armstrong hold- 
ing his own against Beatlemania in 
the top 10. 

The artist’s rendition of “Hello, 
Dolly,” from the hit musical of the 
same name, is one of the great master 
purchase coups of the year, and, as is 
often the case in this business, other 
labels thought it too far out in left- 
field to make it. 

With the success of the deck, Kapp 
naturally desired an LP by the artist 
named after the tune. This has just 
come about, with Kapp vp Mickey 
Kapp heading for Las Vegas last 
week to cut the vet performer at an 
engagement at the Riviera Hotel. The 
title? “Hello, Dolly,” of course. It 
should be released this month. 


Prestige Tags Jackson

Inaugurating the session, to be

tion to label representation, many 
indie record producers as well as 
allied tradesters will be present. 

Label participation will include 
RCA, Columbia-CBS, Philips, Odeon, 
Music Hall, Fermata, Korn, Musart, 
Peerless, Gamma, Disc Jockey, Tizoc, 
Orfeon, Copacabana and many more. 

As previously noted, Cash Box’ 
South American director, Miguel 
Smirnoff, and Enrique Ortiz, the 
magazine’s man in Mexico, will be 
there to report on the event (see next 
week’s issue for full coverage) and 
provide assistance in arranging con- 
tracts and overcome language bar- 
riers. 

Smirnoff will fly to New York fol- 
lowing the confab for a week’s stay. 
He’ll arrive in the city on Monday, 
April 20. 


UA Inks Frankie Avalon 
In Roster Build-Up Drive 

NEW YORK— United Artists Rec- 
ords has signed vocalist-actor Frankie 
Avalon to a long term exclusive re- 
cording contract, it was announced 
last week by Si Mael, vice president 
and general manager of the label. The 
deal was the third major pact con- 
summated by UA in the past week in 
its concerted drive to build up its art- 
ists roster. Previously, instrumental- 
ist A1 Caiola had been re-inked and 
thrush Betty Carter had been signed 
to a long term pact. 

The signing was finalized by Bob 
Marcucci, Avalon’s long-time personal 
manager and president of Chancellor 
Records, where he had a number of 
hit LP’s and singles, which included 
“Venus,” “De De Dinah” and “Why.” 
The pact is for singles and albums, 
with the initial release of both set for 
next month. A&R director Jack Gold 
left for California last week to wax 
tunes from “Muscle Beach Party,” in 
which Avalon stars. 

With Avalon’s emergence as a ‘full- 
fledged’ flick star, mentor Marcucci 
feels that UA with its film, film music 
and international distribution set-up 
is the ideal affiliation for the young- 
ster.

Bulgaria Wants U.S. Labels 
At Int'l Disk Display 

NEW YORK — Bulgaria, an Iron Cur- 
tain country, wants to include U.S. 
label participation in an upcoming 
international display of disks “of all 
genres of music.” 

The U.S. Legation in Sofia was re- 
cently asked by the Concert Bureau, 
an agency of the Bulgarian Govern- 
ment, to arrange the cooperation of 
the American record industry in the 
event. 

The exhibit will be held at Varna, 
Bulgaria this June, and will be moved 
to Burgas and other cities, at no cost 
to the exhibitors. 

The Concert Bureau has called for 
the eai’liest possible response so that 
it may know the extent of U.S. par- 
ticipation. 

Interested U.S. firms should com- 
municate directly with the U.S. Le- 
gation at Sofia. Information copies 
may be sent to the Electronics Divi- 
sion, BSDA-308, U.S. Department of 
Commerce, Washington, D.C., 20230, 
phone 202, 967-4036. 

The Department of Commerce has 
noted that the U.S. Government is not 
in a position to assume any responsi- 
bility for the shipment to and from 
Bulgaria of exhibit material, nor any 
expenses incurred. Also, the U.S. Gov- 
ernment will not be responsible for 
any transactions which may result 
from participation in this exhibit. 


Colpix Pacts Weiss-Sherman 
As Indie Producing Team 

NEW YORK— George Weiss and Joe 
Sherman have been pacted to a long- 
term producing pact by Colpix Rec- 
ords, it was announced last week by 
Don Kirschner, exec vice president of 
the disk division of Columbia Pic- 
tures-Screen Gems TV. The arrange- 
ment is non-exclusive and the Weiss- 
Sherman Productions firm will pro- 
duce an unspecified number of disks 
per year. 

Both Sherman and Weiss are song 
writers, having written the recent 
Nat Cole click, “That Sunday, That 
Summer,” and the title tune for the 
film, “Toys In The Attic,” with Geo. 
Duning. 

The first assignment for Sherman 
and Weiss was the production of 
“How Does It Feel” and “The Grape- 
vine,” by comic Rip Taylor, recently 
brought into the Colpix fold by them. 
In addition to bringing other new ar- 
tists to the diskery, the team may 
produce disks by artists already 
signed to the label. 


BMI Workshops For 
Show Music Writers 

NEW YORK— The BMI Musical The- 
ater Workshop will present excerpts 
from the works of a group of aspir- 
ing composers and lyricists in a series 
of three one-hour showcases under 
the direction of show conductor Leh- 
man Engel at the Maidman Theater, 
starting this Tues. (14). The per- 
formances will be mounted exclusively 
for producers, directors, publishers 
and agents, by invitation only. 

The programs will feature works 
by members of the workshop ranging 
from assigned exercises based on mu- 
sical adaptations of scenes from 
Shakespeare to contemporary drama, 
including original material designed 
for the musical theater. 

The Musical Theater Workshop 
was begun four years ago by BMI to 
expand the opportunity for creative 
activity in the theater by composers 
and lyricists. Although classes are 
limited in size, the workshop is open 
to all who can meet the audition re- 
quirements. BMI’s sponsorship of the 
workshop is similar in concept to that 
of the Actors Studio, seeking to 
broaden the opportunity for active 
professional participation in the the- 
ater. 

Writers whose works will be pre- 
sented in these premiere performances 
are Joan Bender, Raleigh Bond, Wil- 
liam Dyer, Gordon Eis, Francine For- 
est, William Goldstein, Carol Hall, 
Robert Huges, Mel Mitchell, Don 
Parks, Jerry Powell, Jim Rusk, Nor- 
man Sachs, Marvin Schofer, Treva 
Silverman, Pat Welch, Don Wolf and 
Cy Young. They come from all parts 
of the United States and many of 
them have Broadway, off-Broadway, 
supner club, television and recording 
credits. For the most part, they are 
well-known within the confines of 
show business; other members of this 
group are getting their first chance 
to display their talents in a profes- 
sional atmosphere. 

Three completely different show- 
cases of the Musical Theater Work- 
shop will be presented at the Maid- 
man Theater 416 West 42nd Street, 
all under the direction of Lehman En- 
gel, on successive Tuesdays, begin- 
ning April 14. For information re- 
garding the performances, contact 
Robert Sour, Broadcast Music, Inc.,

ephone, PLaza 9-1500.

Janis Moscow-Cut Concert 
Wins French Music Prize 

CHICAGO — Concert pianist Byron 
Janis has received France’s 1964 
Grand Prix International du Disque 
award in the concerto division for his 
performance of Prokofiev’s Third 
Concerto with the Moscow Philhar- 
monic orchestra. 

The performance was recorded by 
Mercury Records last June in Mos- 
cow, which was the first time a West- 
ern company had ever recorded be- 
hind the Iron Curtain. 

Janis is the first American-bom 
pianist ever to win the coveted award, 
presented annually by the Academie 
Charles Cros of Paris. 

The award-winning album is the 
first ever recorded in Russia by West- 
ern technicians and musical staff, us- 
ing their own recording equipment. 
For the project, Mercury shipped four 
and a half tons of equipment to Mos- 
cow including the Mercury mobile re- 
cording truck. 

In charge of the historic session 
for Mercury were Wilma Cozart, then 
vice-president in charge of the classi- 
cal division, who directed the session; 
and Harold Lawrence, musical super- 
visor. 

Janis first performed in Russia in 
1960, where he received an unusually 
enthusiastic reception. 

He returned in 1962 and on May 13 
played a special concert in the Great 
Hall of the Tchaikovsky Conserva- 
tory, at the request of the Russian 
government, for an illustrious gather- 
ing of musicians, students and crit- 
ics. He performed three different con- 
certos in the one evening, including 
the Prokofiev. 

Kyril Kondrashin, who conducted 
the Moscow Philharmonic for both the 
album and the May 13 performance, 
has said: “Byron Janis is one of the 
greatest pianists of this age.”

rules hearing, Johnny Sippel was in- 
correctly described as head of Mon- 
ument Records. Sippel is actually di- 
rector of marketing for the label.

Victor LP Debuts Young 
Folk Lark-Writer, Gale Garnett 

NEW YORK — Gale Garnett, a new 
21-year old folk singer who is cur- 
rently on an extensive hootenany tour, 
makes her RCA Victor Records 
debut this month with an album titled 
“My Kind Of Folk Songs.” 

The artist is a multi-talented per- 
former who writes the words and 
music for much of what she sings. In 
“My Kind of Folk Songs,” five of the 
album’s twelve selections were penned 
by her. Liner notes for her first 
Victor LP were also written by the 
artist, herself. 

Coinciding with the album’s nation- 
wide release, she has embarked on a 
one-niter tour of college and high 
school auditoriums with Jimmie Rodg- 
ers and The Big 3 that will run 
through April 23. After the tour, she 
is booked solidly in nightclubs — in 
Texas, Ohio, California and British 
Columbia — through the month of 
August. 

The performer has been perform- 
ing since the age of 11. A highly 
regarded young actress, she has ap- 
peared on the legitimate stage in 
“Three Penny Opera,” “Guys And 
Dolls,” “The World of Suzie Wong,” 
“Billy Liar” and “Second City.” She 
has played extensively on television, 
acting leading roles in such top net- 
work offerings as “Hawaiian Eye,” 
“77 Sunset Strip,” “Adventures In 
Paradise,” “The Dick Powell Show,” 
“G.E. Theatre” and “Bonanza.” In 
addition, she has been featured in a 
variety of movies that include “The 
Pink Panther,” “The Norman Vincent 
Peale Story,” and the French film “La 
Fille Liza.”

Elektra Foresees Bright 
Prospects For New Classical Line 

NEW YORK — Jac Holzman, presi- 
dent of Elektra Records, announced 
last week that the initial sales of the 
firm’s new classical label, Nonesuch, 
is living up to all his expectations. 

The concept behind Nonesuch is “a 
quality record at the price of a quality 
paperback.” The line caters to an 
ever-growing interest in music of the 
Baroque, Renaissance and modern 
periods. The recordings are made in 
Europe, and Holzman has arranged 
licensing arrangements with Club 
Francais du Disque, Vogue, Pye, 
Chant du Monde and other well- 
known labels. Nonesuch is also plan- 
ning to record original tapes for the 
series. 

The initial release consists of 10 
albums that cover a wide range 
spectrum, from early Renaissance to 
early “moderns.” Holzman expects to 
issue 40 albums in the series during 
the first years of operation. He be- 
lieves that there is a ready market 
for the paperback concept applied to 
first-quality disks. 

The same distribs who handle 
Elektra are also handling the None- 
such line.

FTC Extends Filing 
Date On Trade Rules 

(Continued from page 6) 
mittee on Dual Distribution and Ver- 
tical Integration. 

In speaking to Amos Heilicher, 
president of ARMADA, Rep. Roosevelt 
remarked : 

“. . . in your industry some in- 
telligent effort is being made to at 
least define the problem through the 
conference which the Federal Trade 
Commission has called. I think this 
committee will be very interested 
in the progress of that conference. 
It is the first one in this area of 
dual distribution that we have been 
made aware of, and if it is all right 
with my colleague, I am going to 
suggest that (Subcommittee) counsel 
make an effort to follow this rather 
closely as a possible pattern that 
might be used in other areas where 
this type of industry conference might 
well resolve some problems without 
additional legislation.” 

Rep. Roosevelt also wrote Heilicher 
following the FTC hearing: 

“Please accept my warmest com- 
mendation upon the role played by 
ARMADA in making possible the 
recent landmark trade practice con- 
ference held by the Federal Trade 
Commission for the phonograph rec- 
ord industry. 

The inclusion of Robinson-Patman 
and related problems on the agenda 
of this conference sets a precedent 
that will have impact throughout the 
entire American economy. 

The foresight and diligence of 
ARMADA in bringing this about are 
a distinct contribution to the public 
interest. You have chosen the one 
route most likely to return your in- 
dustry to a semblance of order and 
stability.” 


American Music Stamp Due 

NEW YORK — American music is get- 
ting the stamp of approval from the 
Post Office, literally. 

ASCAP president Stanley Adams 
announced last week that Postmaster 
General John A. Gronouski had noti- 
fied him that an American Music 
Stamp is being issued in conjunction 
with the observance of the 50th an- 
niversary of ASCAP. 

Details are not complete on designs, 
dates of issue or places of first day 
ceremonies, but the American Music 
Stamp will serve as a cultural com- 
panion piece to the fine arts series of 
stamps that reproduce the work of 
great American painters. 


Kapp Jones Promo 

(Continued from page 7) 

arrange to his taste. There are also 
suggested headlines, including: “The 
Jones to Keep Up with is Jack,” 
“Jack Jones Jamboree,” “Television’s 
Newest Recording Star — Jack Jones” 
and “We Have All of Jack Jones Hit 
Albums.” 

Among the dealer aids provided by 
Kapp are displays for in-store and 
windows, plastic browser cards, self- 
service display racks, window stream- 
ers, 4-color 23x29 artist pictures 
(paper), 4-color artist pictures with 
album jackets (cardboard, special 
signs for tops of browsers. 

The label also plans to install pro- 
fessional window displays in 10 major- 
markets. 

In the several years that the 25- 
year-old singer, whose dad, Allan 
oones, thrilled movie and disk fans a 
generation ago with his operetta- 
styled singing, has been cutting for 
Kapp, he has established himself as 
the logical choice for new good-music 
material. 

His first hit, “Lollipops & Roses,” 
already shows signs of becoming a 
standard. In follow-up successes, he 
has turned to film songs, including 
“Call Me Irresponsible,” which saw 
the artist share sales with Frank 
Sinatra, “Wives & Lovers” and, more 
recently “Love With the Proper 
Stranger.” 

To date, Jones has recorded six 
albums. The titles are “Lollipops & 
Roses,” “Wives & Lovers,” “Call Me 
Irresponsible,” “She Loves Me,” “I’ve 
Got a Lot of Livin’ to Do” and “Shall 
We Dance.” 

Later this month, Kapp will intro- 
duce a new single and LP by Jack 
Jones — the new Jones to keep up with. 

Besides his TV standing, the per- 
former continues to make extensive 
p.a. dates. 

He completes his final two weeks of 
an old commitment at the Slate 
Brothers in Hollywood tentatively set 
for June 1. He then headlines the 
variety bill at the Steel Pier in Atlan- 
tic City from July 12-18 and then 
flies to San Francisco to headline at 
the Fairmount, from July 23 to 
August 12. He then returns to Atlan- 
tic City to work his final option at 
Le Bistro from August 14th-23. 

He then goes to Washington as 
headliner at the Hotel Shoreham from 
August 25 through September 6, then 
to Mister Kelly’s in Chicago Septem- 
ber 21-October 11, and the Chase 
Hotel in St. Louis October 12-22. 

He makes his New York hotel debut 
at the Persian Room of the Hotel 
Plaza from December 2-22. In Janu- 
ary-February, he established the all 
time house record at the Living Room 
in New York.

son” a collection of gospel and spirit- 
ual favorites. FM Records, which also 
is nationally distributed through 
Roulette has released “The World Of

Jo Mapes, Allan Grier, etc. 

Two albums that are also released 
this month, but are not part of “The

cludes window streamers, mounted 
easels, consumer catalogs and mailers, 
stock photos of the World’s Fair and 
the various pavilions and a special 
window display contest for dealers 
across the country. According to 
Roulette’s sales chief, Bud Katzel, 
the window display must use the 
World’s Fair as its main theme and 
make full use of the Roulette World 
Of Series album covers. Photo of the 
windows will be judged on originality ^ 
and attractiveness. Roulette is offer- 
ing three first prizes, an all-expense 
paid trip to visit the World’s Fair. 
First prize winners will be selected 
from the East and Southeast, the 
Midwest and the far West. Details of 
the contest are being mailed to the 
Roulette distribs and their dealers. 

Since the beginning of March 
Katzel has been out visiting the dis- 
tribs, dealers, racks and one-stops 
to present The World’s Fair of Enter- 
tainment program. Based on initial 
orders, the program and Roulette’s 
second quarter for album sales will 
exceed all previous second quarter 
periods in the label’s history. 

Katzel also reported that initial 
shipments have already been made 
and in most cases distribs have al- 
ready received their merchandise.

RIC Bows In With 4 

(Continued from page 7) 
as part of his T.M. Music set-up. 

The four new decks point-up RIC’s 
policy of directing its releases to con- 
trasting markets. The Grier sides, 
“Fool, Fool, Fool” and “Since You’ve 
Been Gone,” is set for the R&B trade; 
a second indie production, from Mar- 
nel Music, is aimed at the “good- 
music” trade and features Phil 
Bodner’s clarinet on “Bei Mir Bist Du 
Schoen” and “Sunset;” Larry Fin- 
negan, the label’s young-market A&R 
director, produced and is heard as a 
vocalist on “Dear One, Part Two,” a 
follow-up to his years-back success, 


“Dear One;” Alex Zanetis, whose suc- 
cessful Samos Island Music firm was 
recently purchased by RIG, is the 
house producer of a Nashville-directed 
single, The Terrys’ “Wake Me 100 
Years from Now” and “Never Never 
Land.” 

Csida declared that he expected to 
continue releasing sides by all four 
attractions even if their initial and 
follow-up dates failed to materialize 
as hits. 

The exec also noted that the label 
did not expect to have its distrib line- 
up set in major markets until at least 
this Wed. (15). 

In its promo campaigns, RIC plans 
to combine both “orthodox” national 


promo along with a concept it terms 
“Ricustomized” pushes. According to 
Csida, the concept entails an analyza- * 
tion of the total promo job which can 
be done on the individual disk and 
sets specific “customized” promo plans 
to fit that individual record. 

For the Roosevelt Grier deck, for 
example, the diskery plans to put on 
three indie promo men in the Philly 
and New York area who specialize in 
R&B decks. On the west coast, the 
label has hired a Hollywood public 
relations firm to do a special promo- 
publicity campaign on Grier in that 
area. The press of the sporting world 
will also be informed of Grier as a 
disk artist.

the stars of the show on May 17. The 
Madison Square Garden spectacular 
of country music will feature more 
than 30 major recording stars in each 
of the four performances. 

The Glaser Brothers, Tompaul, Jim 
and Chuck, recently appeared at a 
benefit show for cerebral palsy in 
Jackson, Tenn. Others on the show 
were Jim Reeves, The Browns, Archie 
Campbell and Dotie West. 

Ott Stephens, A&R head of Chart 
Records, sends along word that the 
label has inked Ginny Wright and 
Tom Tall to exclusive contracts. Both 
have already made the trip to the 
Music City for sessions and releases 
are set for the immediate future. Ott 
also notes that any deejays who are 
not on the Chart should write to him 
at 905, 16th Ave. South, Nashville and 
he’ll send them all future releases. 

The month of April is shaping up 
to be an extremely busy one for Er- 
nest Tubb and the Texas Trouba- 
dours. Haze Jones of Hal Smith Art- 
ist’s Productions sez that that crew 
has a thirteen consecutive day tour 
scheduled to begin shortly. Among 
the highlights on the tour will be key 
engagements in Houston, Dallas, Wi- 
chita, Odessa, and Tulsa. 

Skeeter Davis is currently on a pro- 
motion tour which will take her to 
Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Detroit, Chi- 
cago and Cleveland in connection with 
her new Victor release of “I Can Get 
Along With You.” 

George Jones and the Jones Boys 
are taking a short rest in their busy 
schedule before starting a tour to the 
west and California April 15 thru 26, 
starting in Las Vegas and ending in 
San Diego.

Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mt. 
Boys with Penny Jay have been set 
for twenty-two one nighters in May 
which will take them through Penn- 
sylvania, Kentucky, Ohio, Georgia and 
Missouri. Dates were set by the Bar- 
bara Martin Agency. Jimmy is pres- 
ently riding the charts with his Decca 
single of “Widow Maker” and is set 
for follow-up sessions at Bradley 
Studios in Nashville in the near fu- 
ture. 

Chuck Spencer has taken over for 
Johnny Moore spinning the good coun- 
try sounds on WMOU-Berlin, New 
Hampshire. Chuck would like all of 
his many friends in the country music 
field to take note of his new associa- 
tion. 

Decca’s Jimmy Gateley has joined 
the Bill Anderson band on the Grand 
Ole Opry. Jimmy was formerly a 
singing partner of Harold Morrison 
and before that he sang for several 
years on the Red Foley TV’er. Jimmy 
will play bass with the Anderson unit. 

KBER-San Antonio recently com- 
pleted another one of their extremely 
successful Grand Ole Opry Show at 
the San Antonio Municipal Auditori- 
um. Included in the all-star talent 
line-up were Marty Robbins, Hank 
Thompson, Lefty Frizzell, Tex Ritter, 
Rose Maddox, Roger Miller and 
others. A. V. Bamford, vet promoter 
and owner of the outlet, notes that 
follow-up shows have already been 
contracted for May and June. 

Freddie Hart is back on the coast 
after spending some time in Nashville 
cutting sessions for Monument Rec- 
ords. He’ll have a new single release 
out within a few weeks.

REVIEWS 

B-f- very good C+ fair 

B good C mediocre 



“FRENCH RIVIERA” (2:23) [Cedarwood BMI— Pierce] 
“MEMORY #1” (2:31) [Cedarwood BMI— Walker, Powell] 

WEBB PIERCE (Decca 31617) 

The vet hit-maker is in his usual top-notch form on this new Decca 
ultra-commercial release tagged “French Riviera.” The tune an easy- 
going, chorus-backed affair all about a guy who finds romance on the 
Cote D’Azur. Watch it zoom up the charts. The flip, “Memory #1,” is a 
shuffie-beat, tradition-oriented country tear jerker essayed with sincerity 
and feeling by Pierce. 


“BIG OLE HOUSE” (2:18) [New Keys BMI— Dudley] 

“IF I HAD ONE” (2:25) [New Keys BMI— Hall] 

DAVE DUDLEY (Mercury 72254) 

Dave Dudley, who was most recently represented on the charts with 
“Last Day In The Mines,” should certainly repeat that success with this 
offering tabbed “Big Ole House.” Side is a medium-paced tale of romantic 
rejection which spotlights an interesting talking-guitar. On “If I Had 
One” the songster dishes-up an appealing, chorus-backed tradition- 
oriented weeper which he sells with conviction. 


“TAKE ME AS I AM” (2:07) l “IF YOU’LL PARDON ME” (2:07) 
[Acuff-Rose BMI — Bryant] [Central Songs BMI — Allison, 

Stone] 

ROY CLARK (Capitol 5163) 

The chanter should continue his current hot streak and score with 
either side or both of this nifty Capitol outing. One end, “Take Me As I 
Am,” is a slow-moving, full ork-backed, shufflin’ ode in which the artist 
makes a moving plea for acceptance. The other side, “If You’ll Pardon 
Me,” is an easy-going ballad about a guy who finally decides to end a 
harmful romance. Watch ’em both. 


“YESTERDAY” (2:50) [Four Star BMI— Belew, Pitts] 

“PICK OF THE WEEK” (2:25) [Yonah BMI— Anderson] 

ROY DRUSKY (Mercury 72265) 

Roy Drusky, who hit last time out with “Peel Me A Nanner” is a cinch 
to repeat that success with this follow-up stanza labeled “Yesterday.” 
The song is a sentimental pop-flavored, shufflin’ lament which boasts a 
nameless lark adding some feelingful recitation segments. “Pick Hit Of 
The Week” is an uptempo, rhythmic romantic ditty which utilizes a 
clever metaphor. 


“SLIPPING AROUND” (2:17) [Peer Int’l BMI— Tillman] 

“I LOVE YOU SO MUCH IT HURTS” (2:42) [Melody BMI— Tillman] 
MARION WORTH & GEORGE MORGAN (Columbia 43020) 

Marion Worth should put some loot in her purse on the basis of this 
top-drawer teaming-up with George Morgan. The top side here, “Slipping 
Around,” is a tender, medium-paced honky tonk-styled item about a 
romance that can never be. Eye it. The other end, “I Love You So Much 
It Hurts,” is a slow-moving, affair about a romantic twosome who pledge 
life-long affection for each other. 


“WAIT FOR THE WAGON” (2:00) [Banjoe ASCAP] 
“SHENANDOAH” (3:38) [Banjoe ASCAP] 

JIMMY DEAN (Columbia 43021) 

Jimmy Dean can once again get back in his money-making ways with 
this potential-packed release called “Wait For The Wagon.” Side is a 
rousing chorus-backed updating of the infectious sturdie, in which the 
chanter sings and talks his way through with poise and style. The 
coupler, “Shenandoah,” is a first-rate, slow-moving rendition of folk 
evergreen. 


TOMMY WILLIAMS (Petal 1600) 

(B-f) “WHISPER WHISPER” 
(2:49) [Dunrovyn BMI — Wil- 
liams] Tommy Williams has enough 
good things going for himself with 
this tender, chorus-backed, rhythmic 
kiddie nursery rhyme-style affair to 
garner plenty of fast spins. Side could 
skyrocket. 

(B-f) “YUMA PRISON” (3:34) 
[Santa Cruz BMI — Williams] 
On this lid Williams comes up with a 
fine hard-shufflin’ tale about guy who 
yearns for the freedom of “outside” 
life. 


CLIFF JOHNSON (Boyd 129) 

(B-f) “DEVIL BLUE” (1:47) [Knob 
Hill BMI — Kemp] Newcomer 
Cliff Johnson could create a national 
sales stir with this rollicking, folk- 
flavored happy ditty with a con- 
tagious, hard-driving, rhythmic beat. 
Good bet for deejays. 

(B) “WALK THRU THE DOOR 
FOR THE LAST TIME” 
12:27) [Knob Hill BMI— Kemp] This 
time out the chanter offers a slow- 
moving, chorus-backed hillbilly tradi- 
tional.

Cash Box — April 18, 1964 




Belgium is expecting the so-called Nashville Tour, composed of four well- 
known country and western singers under contract with RCA. They are to 
appear before Flemish as well as French language TV. The group is made 
up of Bobby Bare, known over here for his original rendering of “Detroit 
City,” Jim Reeves, probably the most popular of the American singing cow- 
boys in these parts; The Anita Kerr Singers, less well known, but now apt 
to gain popularity with their records and, lastly, Chet Atkins, a virtuoso 
with the guitar. The show is to be filmed at the American Theater in Brussels 
on April 20, the day after their arrival in the Belgian capital. 

Everything seems to be in order now for the coming of Cliff Richard and 
The Shadows. They are to appear over here from May 8 through 10. They are 
scheduled for Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent and Liege. Promotor is Monsieur 
Arthur Mathonet from Antwerp. Previously other impressarii and the like 
have tried to secure Cliff and the Shadows for Belgium, but they have never 
gone beyond Holland. Also expected — in June — are The Beatles. Rumors about 
the beatle-heads from Liverpool are very contradictory but the most stubborn 
is emanating from a showman in Holland, who is pretty sure he will get them. 

Meanwhile Cliff’s disks have been real bestsellers, even though his “Pm 
the Lonely One” has made less impression than the previous hit “Lucky Lips.” 
The Shadows somehow seem to be on the wane through the competition of 
The Beatles, although their latest, “Theme for Young Lovers,” is a potential 
hit. The fact that they are to appear in this country may contribute to this. 
Numerous Belgian magazines and dailies are publicizing their tour over here. 

Siemens told Cash Box it expects a great deal of the second record of their 
Number One John Larry (now at the top with “Alleen”) and featuring “Dicht 
Bij Jou Cherie” and “Geloof Je Mij.” The former is a Passe Partout publica- 
tion; the latter an Ideal Music product. John is the Flemish performer who 
gets the most fanmail. This is a rather unique phenomenon for Belgium. 
At any rate, his fanclub has grown to be the biggest in the Flemish country. 
Ypung audiences are fighting for a lock of his hair wherever he appears. 
Sixteen year old John is living in a dream. “Dicht Bij Jou Cherie” will prob- 
ably be THE hit through the summer months. The record is to be put on sale 
on April 25, “Alleen” still being Hit Number One of Polydor-Belgium. 

Simone Signoret has recorded an LP of Jean Cocteau’s “La Voix Humaine.” 
Polydor announces a new Freddy-single with “Wie Schon Das Du Weider Zu 
Wieder Hause Bist” and “Gib Mir Dein Wort.” Les Compagnons de la Chanson 
have recorded “Mallory,” the song with which Rachel competed for France in 
the recent Eurovision Song festival at Copenhagen. Marcel Amont is to appear 
in Brussels and has also been received at the Martini Club. 

As predicted, the latest Will Tura record with “Draai 79.72.04” on the 
A-side has turned out to be a hit for Palette. We wonder whether it will 
surpass the popular “Eenzaam Zonder Jou.” Southern Music published the 
number. 

Now over to Philips. We would like to point out the importance of the 
Flemish production of this firm. There is a best seller in the making by 
Lize Marke with the Flemish language version of “Sole Sole,” a popular little 
number of a previous San Remo song festival. We must congratulate Van 
Barn, from Holland, who takes care of recordings and who has learned the 
trade abroad. One of the sides is sure to become a hit Lize Marke, who became 
known through her performance at the Canzonissima contest of Flemish TV 
is now bound to score high. Although so far she has not produced a best seller 
she is still very popular with Flemish audiences whom she entertains several 
times a week. Philips has also taken a test of a fifteen year old girl. Liliana 
Ceuninckx, who has won a special award at the finals of the Volkswagen 
contest. This may turn out to be a hit also. 

Joske Harrys has recorded two Flemish versions of the American hits “Louie, 
Louie” (title unchanged) and “Hoor, Nu Zeg ik Het Weer” originally “There, 
I’ve Said It Again” for the new Arsa brand, a label of Anvers Radio. Especially 
the latter number has a good chance of a breakthrough. Both numbers have 
been published by Brauer Editions. This is the result of close cooperation 
between the Herman Brauer Publishing House, boosted by Mr. Darlier and 
Mr. Janty of Anvers Radio. They are aiming high and there hopes may be 
well founded. This may at the same time mean a real chance for success of 
Joske all through Belgium; he already is very popular with Flemish audiences. 
Anvers Radio in the meantime has started sale of Ray Charles’ latest LP 
“Sweet And Sour Tears.”

G.R.R.A. Conference & Exhibition

bels. The import of foreign disks used 
to play a major role in Holland’s rec- 
ord business, but now there are six 
well - equipped Dutch disk factories 
with a production capacity three times 
as great as local consumption. The 
expansion in local disk manufacturing 
plant has obviated much of the high 
duty paid on imported records, and 
has also enabled Holland to make in- 
creasing progress in the export mar- 
ket. The A & R side is active with the 
international exchange of artists for 
personal appearances, radio and TV 
dates with minimal difficulties from 
labour permits and similar restric- 
tions. There are about 1,000 dealers 
retailing records as part of businesses 
including other lines of goods, and 
about 100 specialized disk shops. 
There are two associations controlling 
the Dutch industry: the Association 
of Record Manufacturers and Import- 
ers founded in 1932, and the Dealers 
Association, founded in 1946. Member- 
ship of the Manufacturers body re- 
quires the exclusive distribution rights 
of a label for a minimum of one year, 
and members can only deal with re- 
tailers who are members of the Deal- 
ers Association. In view of Holland’s 
size and excellent transportation fa- 
cilities, there are no wholesalers or 
middlemen involved, and all business 
and deliveries are arranged direct be- 
tween disk firms and retailers. No 
member of the Manufacturers can 
vary their retail price without notify- 
ing the Association, who in turn in- 
form the Dealers Association of the 
impending change before it is finally 
approved. The Dealers Association is 
open to membership for any retailer 
with adequate shop accommodation 
with a display window fronting on a 
public road, who has informed staff 
and can guarantee a £300 minimum 
annual sales turnover at wholesale 
value. Dealers may only buy stock 
from members of the Manufacturers 
Association, and the rules and regula- 
tions of both bodies are supervised by 
the Dutch Ministry of Economic Af- 
fairs. Both Associations are in con- 
stant close contact, and are making 
common task of the challenge to the 
disk business presented by other 
trades and pastimes. Mr. Klaassen de- 
scribed the novel Dutch trade system 
for disposing of ageing stock, which 
applies to other industries as well as 
gramophone records. The last two 
weeks in January and July are de- 
voted to moving old stock, and £30,- 
000,000 worth of trade has been 
notched up throughout Dutch industry 
during these periods. Retailers can 
sell their ageing stock at any low 
price providing it is not below 50% of 
the normal retail price. No classical 
records can be offered under this sys- 
tem until two years after their initial 
release and no pop disks can be sold 
off during the low-price periods until 
a year after their issue. Mr. Klaassen 
said this arrangement clears a large 
amount of otherwise stagnant stock, 
and at least 10% of the total annual 
sales are scored during the month of 
low-price bargains. 

The two Associations are always 
seeking methods of stimulating rec- 
ord sales, and keeping the Dutch pub- 
lic’s interest and attention. A Collec- 
tive Gramophone Record Advertising 
Campaign Association was set up by 
the two parent Associations to publi- 
cise the industry and its product, and 
a successful scheme of record tokens 
was also introduced. These tokens ac- 
counted for £200,000 worth of the 
1963 turnover and are administered 
by Dutch banks, from whom dealers 
obtain the tokens and who receive 1% 
of the money taken for administrative 
costs. Holland has the Edison Award 
also for stimulating interest in disk 
music. There is a bronze statuette of 
Edison presented annually with seven 
classical categories and seven pop 
categories for the competing compa- 
nies, and with winner judged by an 
independent jury of famous Dutch 
critics. October is known as the 
Month of the Record, opening with a 
classical and a pop concert gala on 
radio and TV with top foreign artists 


starring with local talent, and gaining 
much invaluable publicity for the disk 
trade. The month climaxes with the 
Minister of Cultural Affairs present- 
ing the Edison Award to the winning 
company. Mr. Klaassen anticipated 
growing benefits likely to stem from 
the Euromarket community, although 
difference in retailing practice and 
pricing in the individual countries 
exist at present. Last year 20% of the 
Dutch disk sales were taken by Ger- 
man records; 10% by French; 5% by 
Italy and Belgium, and the Holland 
disk industry took a 35% share. The 
remaining percentage was accounted 
for by non-Euromarket countries, in- 
cluding the U.S.A. and Britain. Mr. 
Klaassen stated that attempts have 
been made in Holland to abolish re- 
sale price maintenance as in Britain, 
but there is such close liaison and mu- 
tual agreement between the two As- 
sociations of the industry that a 
strong and united opposition will 
react against such attempts. There 
are two record clubs existing in Hol- 
land, the Music Masterwork Club ac- 
counting for 17% of the classical mar- 
ket and the Readers Digest which has 
been dormant for some time. For the 
continuing prosperity and security of 
the Dutch record retail scene Klaas- 
sen advocated full co-operation be- 
tween manufacturers and retailers as 
in the past. 

The thorny problem of resale price 
maintenance was aired in the open by 
the address given by Mr. C. C. Green, 
Secretary of the Resale Price Mainte- 
nance Co - ordinating Committee, a 
body opposing its abolition on behalf 
of forty national trade associations 
representing the wholesale and retail 
trades. Mr. Green stated that the 
issue had become an emotional as well 
as a political one now, bedeviled by 
confusion and misunderstanding. The 
Government had allowed itself to be 
rushed pell-mell into a piece of ill- 
conceived legislation pressurised by 
stamp trading, economists and certain 
newspapers. Over 60 years of fair 
and honest trading was now at stake, 
threatened by false price cutting and 
phoney bargains. If resale price main- 
tenance goes, service will go along 
with it. The supermarkets would be 
enabled to close down virtually all 
specialist dealers, and were not public 
benefactors as often claimed by inter- 
ested parties. The function of price is 
to sell goods. Mr. Green pointed out 
that everyone was a consumer anxious 
to reduce the cost of living, but the 
abolition of resale price maintenance 
would not achieve this. No one was 
interested in profitless goods. No con- 
sumer will purchase an article if it 
does not give him profit in terms of 
value and satisfaction, and no retailer 
will stock and sell an article unless 
there was a reasonable profit. The 
consumer pays by and large a fair 
price under the present system, en- 
abling manufacturers to make a fair 
profit. If RPM was abolished, monop- 
olies would flourish, dictating what 
consumers could buy at a forced re- 
duction in price resulting in lower 
quality of goods or lower wages or 
both. The big retail outlets would 
stock only what they wanted the con- 
sumer to buy, and how could that be 
in the consumer’s interests? Mr. 
Green concluded by hoping that the 
formidable opposition to the Govern- 
ment’s proposed legislation would pro- 
duce a much more reasonable bill than 
the one currently tabled. He urged 
the conference to write to their Mem- 
bers of Parliament on the subject 
without delay in view of the impend- 
ing debates in Parliament, and re- 
minded them that the best propa- 
ganda for the retention of RPM could 
come to the consumer direct from be- 
hind the sales counter. His forthright, 
hard-hitting address inspired the con- 
ference to pass unanimously a resolu- 
tion opposing the abolition of RPM, 
and directing the G.R.R.A. committee 
to communicate the terms of the res- 
olution to Mr. Edward Heath, Secre- 
tary of Trade, and the Press. 

Mr. Roy Parker, editor of The Rec- 
ord Retailer and Music Industry News, 
gave the conference his impressions

of the American disk retail scene 
gleaned from a fortnight’s trip to 
New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and 
San Francisco last year. He opened 
by mentioning the rack jobber, which 
in Britain represented something dis- 
tasteful and resented in the trade but 
in the States bore a different com- 
plexion entirely. Mr. Parker said that 
because of its geographical structure, 
the American record industry would 
not be as healthy and buoyant as it 
was without racking and other unor- 
thodox outlets. Most Americans lived 
in small towns of under 5,000 popula- 
tion, and in these circumstances spe- 
cialist dealers could not hope to live 
on records alone which were sold as a 
sideline instead. American rack job- 
bers happened to supply a service 
rather than cut price trading only, 
and everyone he spoke to in the States 
except manufacturers agreed racking 
was necessary and desirable there if 
not elsewhere. Moving to the field of 
exploitation Mr. Parker told the con- 
ference that there were 3,5000 separ- 
ate radio stations in the States, and 
that between 70 and 80% of their 
airtime was devoted to broadcasting 
disks. He found more liaison between 
manufacturers, distributors and re- 
tailers than in Britain as regards pro- 
motion, personal appearance tie-ins 
and organising on-the-spot window 
displays in the stores. American disk 
shops worked longer hours than their 
British counterparts and their staff 
was predominantly male in contrast 
to this country. The singles market 
was considerably smaller in propor- 
tion thei’e, although Liverpool’s Bea- 
tles had largely altered this state of 
affairs since his visit. 

The winners of the National Record 
Awards for 1963, presented by the 
GRRA and The Record Retailer & 
Music Industry News, were much 
more equally divided among the rec- 
ord companies than in previous years.

Cash Box — April 18, 1964 International Section 



R a dio Caroline, Britain’s first pirate radio station has gone into action with 
daily transmissions of music from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. broadcast on 199 meters. 
The programs can be received in London, the home counties and East 
Anglia. M.V. Caroline, a converted passenger vessel of 763 tons is anchored 
in international waters five miles from the coast of England and flies a Pan- 
amanian flag. It is the third radio station operating at sea in Europe, the 
other two being Radio Sud in international waters off Sweden and Radio 
Veronica off Holland. Boss of Radio Caroline, Ronan O’Rahilly, aims to supply 
musical entertainment to cater for all tastes with the minimum of announce- 
ments. Programs will be introduced by four regular disk jockeys. Already 
Radio Caroline seems to have run into troubled waters in the form of com- 
plaints from the authorities who claim transmissions seriously interfere with 
sea-to-shore radio communications. 

Manufacturers’ sales of records in January this year were valued at £2,340,- 
000, two-fifths up on the same month a year earlier. Although the biggest in- 
crease was in home sales, export sales were also up by about l/3rd on the 
1963 figure. Production, too, was up compared with a year ago with in- 
creases of 45 rpm and 33% rpm of one fifth and one third respectively. 

Roland Kluger of World Music and Palette Records, Brussells now a regu- 
lar commuter between Belgium and Britain negotiating exchange of material. 
Palette artists with disks already on British release include Monty Babson 
(Pye) and Teddy Mertons (Oriole). Kluger has also set up an independent 
recording unit in London headed by Monty Babson to master British talent 
for release in this country, USA and the continent. Disks already out include 
“I Just Wanna Hear You Say (I Love You)” by The Ravens on Oriole and 
“The White Cliffs Of Dover” by The Ladybirds on Columbia. In the publishing 
field Kluger represents the Belgian interests of British publishers K.P.M. and 
Southern Music. 

Independent producer and artists manager Bunny Lewis, currently on his 
annual visit to America. His three week itinerary takes in New York, Holly- 
wood and Las Vegas for discussions with top talent agents and promoters 
regarding engagements for his roster of British talent. He will also seek 
material for recording and further the transatlantic activities of his Tin Pan 
Alley pubbery. In Chicago, he will visit Irving Green of Mercury Records to 
discuss the American development resulting from his Fontana/Ritz deal in 
this country. 

EMI’s A&R manager George (The Beatles) Martin has paid his own tribute 
to the group by recording an LP entitled “From Me To You” to be released 
here in May on Parlophone and in the United States later this month on 
United Artists. With the exception of “Don’t Bother Me,” which was penned 
by Beatle George Harrison, all twelve tracks are John Lennon/Paul McCartney 
numbers, including “From Me To You,” “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Please 
Please Me,” “She Loves You” and “Can’t Buy Me Love.” Orchestration by 
George Martin, who also conducts the 37-piece orchestra. 

Shirley Bassey and her new manager, Vic Lewis, returned to London from a 
highly successful tour of America, Australia and Hong Kong. Highlight of the 
trip was Shirley’s triumphant hit at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The concert 
which was taped will be released as an album both here and in the States later 
in the year. After a short British tour with Matt Monro and the John Barry 
Orchestra, she returns to London’s top night spot “The Talk of the Town” for 
a season of cabaret. 

The “Fool Britannia” LP starring Peter Sellers, Anthony Newley and Joan 
Collins and released here by Ember has been voted “Top Humorous Disk Of 
1963” by dealers in the Gramophone Record Dealers Association and Record 
Retailer annual popularity poll. Highlights of Ember’s latest releases include 
an LP “Teen Beat” by Grant Tracey and The Sunsets fresh from club and 
TV appearances in Britain and Germany; two EP’s “Hullabaloo Volumes 1 and 
2 were recorded live during the folk festival “Hootenanny” at the Mayfair 
Theatre, London last autumn and look like boosting the growing popularity of 
folk singing in this country. 

Dick James Music expect a double sided hit on HMV with “Patsy Girl” 
written and recorded by Ross McManus and the Joe Loss BlueBeats coupled 
with “I’m The Greatest.” Another Dick James copyright “Daisy Chain” has 
been waxed by a new group, The Naturals (Parlophone). 

Cedric Dumont, “Mr. Music Man of Switzerland,” will be in London for 
business talks for a few days from April 27 staying at The Washington Hotel. 

Agent and manager Derek Boulton has completed a deal with the BBC for 
exclusive recording rights for the “Music While You Work” programs as LP’s. 
Bandleader Stan Reynolds has now waxed a M.W.Y.W. album for release on 
the Philips label. Boulton has also negotiated the LP rights for the BBC’s 
popular “Easy Beat” program and an LP will be released shortly. 

Top American folk trio, Peter, Paul and Mary, currently on their second 
visit to Britain, were guests of honor at a party hosted by Decca Records. 
As well as topping the bill of “Sunday Night At The London Palladium,” the 
trio has been booked for ten days extensive radio, TV and concert work. Their 
Warner Bros, single “Tell It On The Mountain” is currently on release as is 
their EP “Moving.” 

Ex featherweight champion, Kenny Lynch takes on as sparring partner, 
the greatest of them all, Cassius Clay, as both versions of “Stand By Me” 
hit the counters. Clay is making his disk debut on CBS and Kenny’s version 
is available on HMV. Seems Ben E. King, who originally waxed “Stand By 
Me” is doomed not to have a hit in Britain. Shirley Bassey scooped the mar- 
ket with “I (Who Have Nothing)” and now the two champions are fighting 
for chart honors while King stands by. 

Quickies: Congratulations Dusty Springfield for two placings in the Cash 
Box Top 100 “I Only Want To Be With You” and “Stay Awhile.” . . . Also

The Best in Britain. ..Bens 



RCA Victor have released a single by Elvis Presley of “Suspicion.” The song, 
currently hitting in a big way all across the country by way of Terry Stafford’s 
Reo outing was first released in an Elvis LP entitled “Pot Luck.” 

New Canadian produced product is stirring up trade interest in Ottawa and 
Montreal as Loma Records have released a pairing recorded in French by a 
group of priests from the St. Redempterist Order in Aylmer, Quebec. The group 
offers an extremely commercial pairing a la New Christy Minstrels with the 
top side at the moment appearing to be “Alleluia.” The group is billed on record 
as Les Alleluias. Bill Fisher’s Allied firm distributes Loma product across 
Canada. 

Ken Coleman drops a card from Chicago where he is currently working at 
The Play Boy Club. The young artist is keeping his fingers crossed for his 
debut on Epic, “My Talking Dog — Napoleon.” It’s a novelty that presents the 
young ex-deejay in fine voice. Coleman indicates that his deejaying was done 
in Vancouver and in Bermuda. He introduced his song a short while ago on 
the Johnny Carson TV’er. 

Good reports continue to reach us on the 20th. Century Fox outing by Mon- 
trealer, Andy Kim. Top side now is established in several Canadian centres as 
“Give Me Your Love.” Andy is just winding up an extensive promo tour that 
took him to many of the top record towns in both the U.S. and Canada. April 
3., saw the young singer do a bit on CKEY’s Show for Toronto’s crippled 
yourgsters and then on to Hamilton, Buffalo — for a shot on the Tom Shannon 
WGR-TV seg., — Detroit ard Cleveland. It’s the best wax session that Kim has 
had in his comparatively short career, and seems to be making a good name for 
Andv in several key markets. 

CKCK Radio in Regina, in conjunction with promoters George Nellis and 
Don Eccess, presented another successful “Shower Of Stars” on Easter Monday 
(3/30). The show, attended by 4,000 people, featured Shirley Ellis, The Rip 
Chords, The Ronettes, Dion plus the station’s deejays’ Doug Alexander, Bob 
Wood, Ron Andrews and Blaine Benson. 

The new Nat Cole waxing seems to have inspired some degree of contro- 
versey as to which side will be the money outing. At this writing, limited sta- 
tion reports are in favour of “I Don’t Want To Be Hurt Anymore.” But early 
trade picks lean heavily to the flip, “People.” Either way, or both, it’ll be an- 
other big coin collector for Nat. The latest outing on Monument by Roy Orbison 
is off and running in the Ottawa area. Early exposure over the Capitol’s CKOY 
has resulted in good demand at the dealer level as the Big O is now and has 
always been the most ponular record star in Canada’s Capital. Roy was in- 
strumental, along with Bill Justis in a top notch Nashville recording session 
for a young Ottawan, Morrie Logan. Logan’s manager, Barry Brazeau, played 
some demo tapes of the youngster for Orbison when the Monument star was 
in Ottawa recently. This resulted in the Nashville session that has produced 
some truly great commercial sides. They will be held until such time as the 
Beatle business settles down. 

Paul White and the Capitol folks may not even miss the Beatles when they 
eventually do stagger off the hit charts weighed down by all that money and 
all those golden disks. Capitol is currently clicking in Canada with no less than 
five red hot sides from Great Britain — none of them by The Beatles. “Bits And 
Pieces” by The Dave Clark Five is a blockbuster, as big as if not bigger than — 
the initial release by the group, “Glad All Over.” “I’m The One” by Gerry and 
The Pacemakers is already well on the way to the nation’s top ten. “Little 
Children” by Billy J. Kramer will be a red hot item in less time than it takes 
to tell about it. “It’s An Open Secret,” the unusual, but sensational outing by 
the Joy Strings has appeal for any kind of broadcast format. This wide air 
exposure is turning this Salvation Army-type-sound into a sure hit. Last, but 
by no means least, is the latest song by Cliff Richard. “I’m The Lonely One” 
has been in demand for several weeks now, before it was even released in 
Canada. 

Welcome CB visitors recently were the Romeos. The boys dropped in with a 
copy of their new Columbia album which represents a drastic departure from 
their style as it has been presented on TV. A truly refreshing, yet very com- 
mercial, approach to a collection of outstanding oldies, with some great read- 
ings of several sensational new items make this package far and away the 
best thing that the group has done on wax to date. They run the gammut from 
spiritual-type things through jazz and dixieland to very commercial sounds of 
the sixties. It was recorded with one of the swingin’est musical backgrounds 
these tired old ears have heard in some time and represents a first class com- 
mercial effort on the part of all concerned. Other Cash Box callers of late have 
been that outstanding booster of Canadian talent and product, Whitey Haines, 
the man from BMI. Whitey stopped for an hour or so between Montreal and 
Nashville to fill us in on many of the things that he’s working on and about 
to work on. According to the music biz veteran, there has never been a period 
when Canadian record product has achieved and is maintaining such a high 
calibre. Also dropping up for a visit was the delightfully charming Miss Lori 
Bruner. After several years in the record promotion business, Lori has made 
the big switch to retail sales. She is now associated with Harry Gottlieb and

The Simon Sisters’ new Kapp single features the selection from their debut 
album on the label that created such a stir in several Canadian centres, 
“Winkin’ Blinkin’ And Nod.” It has that “Puff” sound and should develop into 
a smash in very short order.

Once again we wish to recall the attention of our readers on the fact that 
for the first time there has been sold in Italy one million copies of a single 
record, thanks to the wonderful performance of Bobby Solo, who has waxed 
under the Ricordi label his big hit “Una Lacrima Sul Viso.” This is a con- 
firmation of the extraordinary promotional power of the San Remo Festival, 
but on the other hand this a clear sign of how fast our record market is 
still growing. Bobby Solo is the first artist, and Ricordi the first label to have 
overpassed the million mark on our market, and this in only eight weeks! 

But there are also other signs, perhaps less evident, that are clearly indi- 
cating this substantial growth of our record business: In Italy too, as in other 
European countries, there is an increasing demand by part of the public for 
LP disks, both of pop and classical music. Perhaps in the classical field the 
most vigorous impulse has been given besides clubs sales, by the different 
releases of the most important record firms of a special low priced series 
(Ace Of Clubs by Decca, Invitation To The Music by EMI Italiana, K Series 
by RCA and Mosaico Series by RI.FI). These series represent a good invest- 
ment thanks to their sales success, and are also a strong promotional means 
for the other normal priced albums, since they served to acquaint and intro- 
duce classical music to a large part of new customers. 

It is not possible to have in Italy official figures of record sales, but accord- 
ing to our inquiries in the market, we think that we’re not far from truth 
announcing that during this last year the percentage of increase of our 
record sales is about 30%, of the previous year’s sales. This result is due, 
of course, also to some sagacious initiatives taken into the pop field too, like 
the strong seasonal promotional campaign, devoted by every producer to 
a limited number of preselected releases, or some principles adopted in the 
releases of pop albums and so on, which, on the whole, have limited the 
number of the yearly releases by part of the Italian industry, and have 
permitted the various firms to strongly push and exploit a more selected 
product that has won over new customers to the cause of the recorded music. 

David Matalon is the new A/R Manager of Phonogram. He still remains 
proprietor of Ducale Publishing and Record firm, but on the other hand he 
will also act as the exec of the entire production of both Philips and DGG 
channels of Phonogram. 

Other interesting news concerns Alfredo Rossi, owner of the Ariston Pub- 
lishing Group. After his debut as an indie record producer, Rossi will soon 
present on the market his own record label called Ariston. Alfredo Rossi 
is proprietor of a record moulding factory, too. 

EMI Italiana has announced the visit of the pop American talent of Bobby 
Vee. Bobby will record in Milan some Italian versions of his last US hits, 
and he will also take part on the pop TV show, “The Dreams Fair,” on 
which he will perform one of his recent hits. 

Also announced for the end of April is the visit in Italy of another EMI 
pop singer, the French artist Richard Anthony. He, too, will take part on 
a TV show, and he will record his summer disk. His last Italian recording 
“Cin-Cin” (Cheat-Cheat) published by Southern Music, climbing our charts, 
now No. 13 on hit parade. 

MRC, the record firm owned by Alberto Carisch, is introducing on the 
market the new talent of Caterina Caselli. This is the second artist to be pro- 
duced under the MRC mark: she is making her debut on the record scene 
with two titles “Sciocca,” Italian version of the American tune “She’s A 
Fool” published in Italy by Southern, and “Ti Telefono Tutte Le Sere,” an 
original Italian copyright also owned by Southern. 

While on the subject of Southern Publishing firm, let’s mention also three 
other compositions it controls and on which they are making a strong promo- 
tion: “El Tin-Tin Del Corazon” and “Cerca De Ti” are coupled on the new 
summer record of Los Hermanos Rigual, while “Don’t Make Me Over” under 
the Italian title “Non Dirmi Niente” has been recorded by Ornella Vanoni. 
This is the last record released by Ornella before her two months stay in 
South America, where she will act as the female protagonist of the musical 
“Rugantino,” which made its debut on the Buenos Aires stage of the Coliseo 
Theatre recently. The music of this comedy is owned by Campi, and Mr. Luigi 
has left for Buenos Aires, where he will assist in getting representation of 
the musical. Rugantino’s music is sub-published in South-American countries 
by Fermata. 

The pop trio Los Marcellos Ferial has recorded under the Durium label the 
great hit “Maria Elena.” This is one of the first Italian releases of this title, 
and it is expected to be successful in Italy, too. 

SAAR is strongly working for the “summer sales operation”: Ezio Leoni 
has informed Cash Box that ten different artists and therefore, ten different 
disks will be promoted for the hot season. He furnished to us with the list 
of the ten artists which includes Tony Dallara, Remo Germani, Nicola Di Bari, 
Luigi Tenco, Peppino Gagliardi, Fausto Leali, Fausto Mola, Petula Clark, 
Francoise Hardy and Ben E. King. 

Claudia Mori, a young film actress is making her debut on the record scene 
recording under the new Clentano label, Fantasy. Her first disk is “Non 
Guardarmi,” published by Cielo-Girl. Claudia Mori, as a songstress, is a 
new discovery of Adriano Celentano.

MEXICO 



Everything is ready! This week, on April 13 begins the Third Congress 
of the Federation of Latin American Record Producers, which takes place 
in Mexico City. In Mexico City are Luis A. Aubry, president of the federa- 
tion, Henry Jessen, secretary and many other members who arrived a^ few 
days before to interchange impressions with record executives in Mexico. 
Many interesting themes will be discussed, which have been explained before 
in other Cash Box’s! Miguel Smirnoff, will cover this congress, which promise 
to be the most important one yet. 

Lucho Gatica plans a trip to Buenos Aires to perform in several entertain- 
ment places and may also record a long play there. For a long time, Lucho 
has not made a performance in Mexico, even though he lives here with his 
wife and two children. 

RCA Victor recorded the performance of Pedro Vargas at New York’s 
Carnegie Hall. RCA may do two or three long plays of this event. 

CBS Columbia gave two cocktail parties. The first was to welcome pianist 
Alexander Brailowsky, who will give a series of concerts at the Palace of 
Fine Arts and the second to welcome Dave Brubeck, who will also perform 
at the same place. 

Enrique Guzman’s father returned from Europe, where he tried to see the 
possibilities of representations for the future record of his son. As you know, 
Enrique is at the moment a free artist, and his father is acting as his 
representative. 

Lalo Carrion made his first solo recording at Orfeon with the songs “Amor 
Celestial” (Heavenly Projects) and “No Juegues Ya Mas” (Don’t Play Any- 
more) from the “II Sorpasso” picture. The arrangements and orchestra were 
handled by Kay Perez. 

Reports from Musart Records say the Beatles’ records are having very 
good sales in Mexico, continuing the world success of this English group. 

DUS A Records released new Connie Francis EP, including the songs “A1 
Di La” in Italian and “Danke Schoen,” “Fly Me To The Moon” and the movie 
theme “Behind Love” in Spanish. Connie didn’t accept terms to perform in 
Mexico. Maybe on some other occasion. 

Because problems with her visa, Spanish actress and singer Rocio Durcal 
couldn’t arrive in Mexico City on time to fulfil contracts with night clubs 
and TV, but now everything is settled and she should be here soon. Rocio 
Durcal’s latest picture, “Rocio De La Mancha,” will be performed in three 
theaters of the Mexican capital on May 15. 

Rock and roll group Los Hooligans recorded at Orfeon records two new 
themes named, “No Te Comas Las Unas” (Don’t Bite Your Nails) and 
“Minutos A Solas” (Minutes Alone). This group has been traveling a lot 
in the past weeks and now will start a TV series. 

CBS released the Cassius Clay record “Stand By Me” and “I Am The 
Greatest” and with rock and roll group Los Locos del Ritmo the songs 
“Splish Splash” and “You Know How.” Latter was the last record made by 
Los Locos del Ritmo at CBS because now they are exclusive Orfeon Records 
artists. 

On April 10, Salvador Suarez, general manager of the most important 
record selling stores in the country, gave his trophies to the artists he has 
sold best in the last twelve weeks. Next week we will be able to give the 
names of these artists. 

Musart Records released an extended play with Johnny Mathis, including 
the songs “Bye Bye Barbara,” “A Wonderful Night To Cry,” “Come Back” 
and “Your Young Dreams.” The same company released on the Liberty label, 
records with The Ventures, Pete King, Tommy Garret and Gene McDaniels.

Cash Box — April 18, 1964- 


International Section 





CBS hosted a cocktail-party in order to introduce the new general manager of 
Columbia Records in Latin America — Juan Manuel Villareal. This VIP from that 
diskery, also the vice-president of the company, was accompanied by his charming 
wife and will fly to Rio de Janeiro, then to Argentina. While Jose Carlos Romeu 
(Radio Bandeirantes) was doing a direct transmission of the happening, Roberto 
Corte-Real (director of Radio Record and an old friend of Villareal) and Julio 
Rozemberg (Radio Tupi) were recording long and interesting interviews. Among 
the people who attended this homage we could see some important names con- 
nected with the record industry, news and several artists: Enrique Lebendiger 
of Fermata, Scatena of RGE, Helio de Araujo from O.V.C., who was also 
recording interviews, Magno Salerno of Emissoras Associadas, Dirceu Corte-Real 
(formerly with CBS), and also Ana Stella Schic, famous piano concertist, Maestro 
Silvio Mazzuca, Carlos Jose and Roberto Carlos (both singers under contract with 
CBS), as well as the company’s manager for Brazil, Evandro Ribeiro and all the 
staff from the label in Sao Paulo. It is Villareal’s first trip to Brazil after he 
assumed that important position. This stay in Brazil is part of a Latin American 
tour. The experienced and efficient professional has great plans for the label on 
an international scale. He will try to “abolish musical borders” in Latin America, 
based on the idea that people with a generally similar racial background, must 
have a musical taste which will accept the rhythm and music of each one and 
all the countries which form Latin-America. Juan Manuel will form a cast of 
artists which has acceptance in the country. Villareal will also go to Europe 
in the near future, where he will attend a Congress in Torremolinos, Spain. 

From the classical field: the second LP of Ana Stella Schic is being released 

on the CBS label. Ana Stella is considered by critics and public one of the most 

representative piano soloists of Brazil. Since 1947, Ana Stella has been giving 
concerts in almost every country, especially in Europe, where she has a reputation 
as one of the best concert artists in the world. She received several prizes in 
Brazil, important ones, and also in other countries, like the Harriet Cohen Piano 
Medal in London. This great artist, who was considered by the critics in Holland 
“one of those artistic phenomenon which only happens from time to time,” was 
born in the same town as that great pride of Brazilian classical music — Carlos 

Comes. Her main preoccupation when she plans the programs for her concerts, 

especially in a foreign country, is always to include Brazilian composers; and 
she is partly responsible for having made such names as Villa-Lobos, Francisco 
Mignone, Camargo Guarnieri, Lorenzo Fernandez, Frutuoso Viana, Ernani Braga, 
Claudio Santoro, and others, familiar to the audiences of many a European country, 
inserting them between the compositions of the names known to the great public — 
Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven, Lisst — which she also masters with full assurance. 
We had the opportunity to talk to Ana Stella, who told us about her immediate 
plans: presently, she is preparing her third LP for CBS. Then, Ana Stella will 
be member of the jury in Lisbon, Portugal, which will grant the most important 
piano award in that country — Premio Viana da Motta; while in Lisbon, she will 
give her first concert in that country; she will probably make another tour in 
Europe (she made two last year) and then start to make arrangements to sum- 
marize negotiations in order to present herself to the public of the United States. 

Mario Duarte, production manager and PR of RGE informs: the talented and 
world famous (for many reasons) singer Maysa will soon start cutting a new LP 
for that label. Another artist will cut an LP: Susana Morais, daughter of ambas- 
sador-composer Vinicius de Morais. The last LP recorded by Paulinho Nogueira, 
referred to in recent column, will be released with strong promotion in Uruguay, 
Argentina, Venezuela and Mexico. The Brazilian songster who used the success 
of Trini Lopez in adopting the artistic name Prini Lorez, after a certain success 
with his rendition of “America” (West Side Story), comes out with another EP 
for this diskery — “La Bamba” c/w “Walk Right In.” The label will then release 
an LP of the songster. It seems that the questionable trick resulted. ... At the 
same time, RGE is releasing an LP of Jimmie Rodgers which includes the very 
same songs. Os Anjos Negros (The Black Angels) is the name of a vocal group 
now under contract with RGE in which the label has great hopes. 

While the original version of the song which won first prize in the San Remo 
Festival of 1964 — “Non Ho L’Eta Per Amarti,” by the young Italian singer — 
Cigliola Cinquetti — should do well on the charts, two Brazilian versions are 
being cut and will soon hit the market: Alda Perdigao for RGE and Moacyr Franco 
for Copacabana. The name of the song in Portuguese; “Poema De Ternura.”

Philip Brodie and Enrique Rosso of Odeon, Maximo Wyngaard of Phono- 
gram, Ian W. Morris of Famous and Cuno Frederich of RCA will be repre- 
senting Argentina at the Mexican convention of the Latin American Federa- 
tion of Record Producers, April 13. Up to the moment of writing this 
column, the trip of Nano Kaminsky of Microfon hadn’t been confirmed yet. 
Morris will afterwards fly to New York to get in touch with US record scene 
once again, and probably return through Rio de Janeiro to Buenos Aires. 

Mauricio Brenner of Fermata Publishers is in Chile, looking after the pro- 
motion of the tunes his organization, controls in that area. Brenner is also 
visiting the top deejays in Santiago, who receive a direct mail record service 
from Producciones Fermata, and several composers whose works are pub- 
lished by Fermata. 

Julio Korn Publishers continues the line of British hits: the pubbery has 
now inked for representation “Glad All Over,” the Dave Clark Five hit. Other 
JK tunes are “El Joven Filosofo,” recorded by Enrique Guzman in Mexico, 
and “La Bomba,” waxed by Los Locos del Ritmo in the same country. 

Jose Ruzo of Sprint Music infos that he is now promoting “Colorado,” 
a French song already waxed by Orlando for Bel-Air in Paris, and released 
here by Music Hall. Spanish lyrics for this tune are being prepared, and 
local versions expected. Other Sprint items are “Un Baccio Piccolisimo,” 
which may be recorded by Antonio Prieto for RCA, and “El Muchacho Del 
Jopo,” already in the market via a Little Tony (Microfon) recording. 

Beatriz Chirinian of the press department of Odeon reports that the label 
has released “Hippy Hippy Shake” and “Now I Must Go,” by the Swinging 
Blue Jeans, “Okey” by Chilean duet The Carr Twins and “Sinner, Not A 
Saint,” by Trini Lopez. The diskery is working hard on “Dominique,” recorded 
in Mexico by Angelica Maria, and a new Warner Bros, outing: “Sometimes 
on Friday” by Claude Gordon. 

More about Fermata: Juan Ramon (Disc Jockey) has cut “Nena, Eres 
Tu” (Baby, It’s You), the old Shirelles hit, coupled with “Que Pasara.” “En 
La Cima De La Montana,” another Fermata tune, has been also cut by Juan 
Ramon. The pubbery is now working on Indonesian music: the first title will 
be “Dupi Dupi.” 

Jorge Cesar Esperon of Tonodisc informs that the label will increase its 
power in the field of local recordings, releasing new singles and albums by 
its Argentine artists. One of them is Stirling Brandy, a instrumental group, 
and Los Cuatro Para el Mundo, a successful folk quartet. Los Cuatro will 
now wax all types of music, and not only folk tunes. 

News from Sicamericana: Rafael Hidalgo, melodic singer, is now per- 
forming in Peru, where he has several TV and night-club contracts. Before 
leaving Buenos Aires, he recoi'ded two tangos: “Dame Un Motivo” and “Llore 
Por Ti.” Music Hall has also released a Compact 33 by The Rooftop Singers, 
including “Mama Don’t Allow,” “Tom Cat” and “Shoes.” There is also a 
selection EP with surf music: “Surf’s Up,” and a new single by Brazilian 
songstress Yuyu Da Silva: “El Doctor.” 

CBS continues the promotion of several new names that may reach stardom 
in short time. We’ve already informed about Pepe Capote and his first single, 
“Pobre Pero Honrado.” The others are Ricardo Guzman, young tango music 
chanter; Teresita, teen songstress, and Larry, whose “Beatriz” is already 
in the charts. The label is also working hard on “Lita,” which had a very 
interesting advanced sales mark before its appearance. The diskery has also 
released a new album by Astor Piazzolla and his modern tango group, and 
an album by Bobby Vinton. 

Michael Davis from Famous informs that the label is preparing a new 
album by Brian Hyland, after the successful visit of the chanter to Buenos 
Aires. Also due are LP’s by Ray Charles and Frank Ifield, who, according to 
Davis, seems to be becoming a big name in Argentina, considering the sales 
marks of his records. 

Producciones Fermata is releasing a Selection album titled “Twelve Hits,” 
containing waxings by artists presented by PF in Argentina. Also on desk 
is “Canciones Premiadas,” recorded by Vicentico Valdes, and an album by 
Italian chanter Robertino. 

These are some of the titles of the “Sabados Continuados” LP, presented 
by RCA: “Carla” by Palito Ortega; “Que Suerte,” Violeta Rivas; “Fo- 
Tonovela,” Lalo Fransen; “No Tengo Mas Problemas,” Johnny Tedesco; 
“Primavera,” Johnny Tedesco and “Como Se Siente,” also by Palito. Besides 
its wide promotion (through Channel 9, radio and magazines) the album 
also offers a two-person ticket for seeing “Sabados Continuados,” the TV 
program. 

Roberto Lambertucci of Neumann-Downey infos that he is working on 
the promotion of the tunes included in “Rugantino,” the musical comedy 
to be represented at the Coliseo Theater by the same artists that played it 
on Broadway. There are two especially interesting tunes, and Lambertucci 
is preparing Spanish lyrics for them.

DENMARK 

The first Danish recordings of the songs from the recent Eurovision Song 
Festival are now available. Pedro Biker has recorded Britain’s “I Love The 
Little Things,” here titled “Der’ No’Et Over Dig,” and Finland’s “Laiskotellen,” 
here titled “Weekend.” The Danish lyrics of the British song is written by 
Peter Mynte, and the record is on Philips. Another recent Philips release from 
Nordisk Polyphon Akts. is “Morgen 1st Alles Voruber”/“Bonjour L’Amour” 
with Ester Ofarim. Same company has also rushed out Max Roach’ “Freedom 
Now Suite.” 

When the Copenhagen evening paper B.T. recently published its “most sold 
records during March,” it must have been a triumph for EMI which had eight 
of the ten records on that chart. Four of them were with The Beatles. The 
latest released from EMI here includes “Can’t Buy Me Love” with The Beatles 
on Parlophone, Cilia Black with “Anyone Who Had A Heart” on the same 
label, “I Love The Little Things” with Matt Monro, “Blue Winter” with Connie 
Francis on MGM and “Twist Im Blut” with Hazy Osterwald Sextet on Colum- 
bia. EPs with Cliff Richard, The Dakotas, Billy J. Kramer and Yves Montand 
were also among the recent releases. 


FINLAND 

The fact that Finland is a country where Finnish language records usually 
do better than foreign language records (and that’s unusual, at least in 
Scandinavia) was again documented when Scandia recorded two of The 
Beatles’ most popular songs in Finnish. “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” here 
titled “Jos Kaden Annat Vain” and “From Me To You,” here titled “Meidan 
Yhteinen.” The single was recorded by Ann-Christine and Johnny with The 
Hounds. 

NORWAY 

Wenche Myhre, 16, local sensation who went to the top of the charts last 
' October with her Norwegian reading of the German “Ich Will ’Nen Cowboy 
Als Mann” on Triola, has done it again. This time with a Norwegian song, “La 
Meg Vaere Ung” (Let Me Be Young), one of the songs from the local Song 
Festival this year, and according to many people, the song that should have 
represented Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen last month. 
Arne Bendiksen, who sang for Norway in Copenhagen, said so before the 
Contest, and after the Contest he repeated it, and said that with Wenche Myhre 
singing “La Meg Vaere Ung” Norway could very well have created a sensation 
in the Contest. Bendiksen has written and composed this song himself, and as 
head of Egil Monn Iversen A/S in Oslo, he is also the publisher of it. 

The Swedish group The Hootenanny Singers and their “Jag Vantar Vid Min 
Mila” is now being released as single under the Fontana label here, and also as 
LP at the original Polar label. 

Norsk Phonogram A/S (Philips, among others), is now working hard on the 
promotion of Barbra Streisand on CBS in Norway. Same company has also 
released six LPs of the Audio Fidelity label. 

SWEDEN 

1964 looks like the year when every artist finds his way to Sweden, to judge 
from names and touring schedules just published here. A country & western 
group including Chet Atkins, Jim Reeves, Bobby Bare and the Anita Kerr 
Singers is on their way here in the middle of April. Sammy Davis Jr., Alice 
Babs, Ingrid Bergman, Jan Malmsjo, Harry Arnold Orchestra and the Viet- 
namese singer Tiny Young (her real name, Thien Huong Ton Nu Thi is 
considered a little too complicated for a career in European show biz) are 
guests in a charity gala for UNICEF in Stockholm April 25. Charlie Mingus 
and Kenny Ball’s Orchestra are contracted for tours in middle of April. Art 
Farmer and Jimmy Hall at the end of April. In beginning of May the Swedes 
can expect Big Dee Irwin and Sound Inc. Michael Cox arrives in middle of May 
and The Dave Clark Five in the end of May. So does Johnny Kidd and The 
Pirates, Cliff Richard, who will continue touring here also in June. In June 
also arrives Woody Herman Orch., and also Jack Dailey, Terry Wayne and 
Jimmy Justice. Gene Vincent and Chubby Checker is also contracted for June. 
Larry Finnegan in June-July, Anita O’Day in July, Ray Charles is also coming 
in July, so does Tex Beneke and the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Around Mid- 
summer we can expect Billy J. Kramer, Adams Faith, Delta Rhythm Boys, 
among others and in end of July Don Gardner and Dee Dee Ford. Mark Murphy 
is contracted for August, Gerry and The Pacemakers, The Swinging Blue Jeans 
and Cilia Black — and eventually, also The Beatles has been mentioned for a 
tour this year. For the latter, no dates or contracts have been fixed yet. Josh 
White, The Brothers Four, Oscar Brown Jr., Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald, 
Jerry Lee Lewis, Freddie and The Dreamers, Julie Grant and the French 
Johnny Halliday are other names who already are contracted for Swedish tours 
during summer and autumn 1964. Some of the above mentioned will be touring 
Sweden only, while others are contracted for all-Scandinavian tours. 

Britain’s “I Love The Little Things,” second in the Eurovision Song Contest 
last month, is titled “Bara Ett Litet Ord” in Swedish. Sonora Musikforlags AB 
is rushing out the sheet music with Swedish lyrics by Bengt Sten. According 
to Sture Borgedahl of Sonora, the first Swedish recordings can be expected 
any day now. 

Philips-Sonora has rushed out two EPs with the local group Spiralerna (The 
Spirals), who made their TV debut last Good Friday singing negro spirituals. 

Among actual record releases here can be mentioned “Four Days That 
Shocked The World” on Colpix, rushed out here by Sonet Grammofon AB. 

Of records from the Eurovision Song Contest has been released here the 
British “I Love The Little Things” with Matt Monro on Parlophone, the 
German “Man Gewohnt Sich So Schnell An Das Schone” with Nora Nova on 
Ariola, the French “Le Chant de Mallory” with Rachel on Barclay and, of 
course, the winning Italian “Non Ho L’Eta” with Gioliola Cinquetti on Triola. 

Publisher Stig Anderson (and Mrs. Anderson) off for Paris, Madrid and 
Canary Islands for two weeks of combined business and vacation trip. 

Restaurant Ambassadeur in Stockholm changed owners on April 1, with 
Borge Bruun, already running the PB in Stockholm’s Old Town and Restaurant 
Peter Mynde as the new owner of Ambassadeur. For the coming summer, the 
restaurant will operate as a night-club, but for the autumn certain changes 
were announced. It is expected that the restaurant might try to specialize in 
local artistes, mainly record artistes. It seems obvious that striptease acts, 
popular on every spot here a couple of years ago, are not longer interesting 
the audiences.

RCA Victor shot off its big country and western guns in Germany recently 
at the first German tour of stars Chet Atkins, Bobby Bare, Jim Reeves and 
his band, Anita Kerr and her singers along with Werner Muller and his 
Orchestra, Vico Torriani and Ronny. The tour covered Hamburg, Frankfurt, 
Munich, Vienna, Hannover, Essen and Berlin and a nation wide TV show 
was also done for later broadcast. 

► Polydor A&R man Bobby Schmidt has recorded “Kansas City” and the 
German tune “Wiedersehn Is Wonderful” with Brenda Lee and the record has 
now been released here. The tunes were recorded in German in Nashville. 
Bobby took advantage of his trip to Nashville to record several “playbacks” 
for future productions. 

The production chief of Polydor International, Heinz Viogt has returned 
from the U.S. where he had talks with his contract pardners and has renewed 
pacts with Command and United Artists for Polydor. 

Polydor is building a new recording studio in Munich. The firm which 
i already has studios in Hamburg and Cologne has decided to build a new 
modern plant in Munich which is now the musical center of Germany. The 
studio will be finished by the end of the year. 

Several Polydor stars have planned a visit to Russia. From the middle 
of May until the middle of June, the orchestra of Kurt Edelhagen, and 
singers Monika Grimm, Will Brandes and The Medium Terzett will be making 
a tour of Russia with 25 concerts planned in such cities as Moscow, Lenin- 
grad and in Baku on the Black Sea. The premier is on May 16 in Moscow. 

Ella Fitzgerald and Oscar Peterson will be making appearances in Germany 
t' this month. The jazz stars will visit Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, 
Stuttgart and Oldenburg from April 16 until May 1st. Connie Francis is also 
expected to be here in May and Brenda Lee will visit Germany in September. 

Polydor A&R man Gerhard Mendelson visited Nashville for recordings there 
in English with German/ American star Gus Backus. Bill Justice did the 
arrangements. Mendelson then went to New York for German recordings 
with Connie Francis. 

Klaus Teubig of Edition Esplanade reports that the firm is working hard 
on new German disks by Lale Anderson, Freddy, Hanne Wieder and Mariona 
- all on Polydor. 

Felix Stahl of Atruim Music and Stoekholmsmusikproduktion reports from 
Israel where he is on vacation that he will record in Paris with Caravelli 
and his magic strings of song by German composer Gerhard Winkler called 
“Close To You” and “I Love You” written by Alstone and Stahl, the com- 
posers of “Many Times.” 

Deutsche Vogue records reports that its new 13.50 DM ($3.40) low price 
LP series is selling like wildfire. Over 50,000 disks have already been sold. 

Teldec records reports that the Ambassador from India P. A. Menon and 
. the Hamburg General consul from India S. Krishnaswamy visited the firm 
in Hamburg and Nortorf. Foreign sales director K. H. Richter conducted the 
tour which included the manufacturing plant, the studios and the offices as 
well as the pressing plant which turns out over 2 million records a month. 

Indie production man Mr. Jacob reports that he has signed Swedish lass 
Bibi Johns to a contract and that she will record the hit tune “Anyone Who Had 
A Heart” in German. Jacob has also signed Swedish prize winner Jane Swaerd, 
comedy star Edith Hancke, and former Ariola teener Gaby King to exclusive 
pacts. Bibi’s records will be released through Deutsche Vogue. 

Polydor records has started a new series of EP’s called “Our Sunday Con- 
cert.” 26 EP’s have been released in the series until now. 

. Teldec writes that Hermann Prey visited the U.S. and gave a concert of 
' songs from Richard Strauss and Franz Schubert on April 4 in New York. 
That’s it for this week in Germany.

After quite a long delay, EMI has released the Terry Stafford record of 
“Suspicion,” which is a top ten record in the United States. Radio stations 
have been leaning on imported copies of the record with the result that a 
strong demand has been created. This demand should soon put “Suspicion” 
and Terry Stafford onto our list of best-sellers. 

Australia Record Company and Aaron Schroeder Music (Australia) Pty. 
Ltd. joined forces to present a cocktail reception for United Artists recording 
star Gene Pitney, who is in Australia for the big “Liverpool Sound” show 
being promoted by Pan Pacific Promotions. 

The Gloria Lynne click “I Wish You Love” has been released here by W & G 
Records under the terms of a special agreement with Everest records of the 
United States. 

In a move that has been anticipated for some time, RCA of Australia Pty. 
Ltd. has taken over the distribution in Victoria of its own records— which 
were formerly handled by Amalgamated Wireless (Australasia) Ltd. RCA is 
operating out of offices in Richmond, a suburb of Melbourne. 

Disk jockey John Laws, who operates from the Macquarie Network head- 
quarters of Station 2GB in Sydney, is reported to be ill and is expected to be 
away from the microphone for at least a month. During John’s absence, his 
national shows will be handled by Tony Doherty working out of the 3AW 
studios. 3 AW (Melbourne) is the chief Macquarie outlet in Victoria. 

The Belinda Music publishing group (including T.M. Music; Aaron Schroe- 
der; Kalman and several others) is having a good run at the moment with a 
batch of hits and potential hits numbering “Anyone Who Had A Heart”; 
“Fun In Acapulco”; “Understand Your Man”; “Suspicion”; “Little Children”; 
“The Shoop Shoop Song”; “Candy Man”; “Blue Winter” and “Hey Bobba 
Needle.” 

The Beatles continue to dominate the scene here just as they do all over 
the world. They have the top three singles across Australia and sales of their 
records continue at a staggering rate. In the sheet music field, songs associ- 
ated with the Beatles are way out in front of everything else. As the whole 
world knows by now, the Beatles are set for a concert tour of Australia in 
June. Bookings for the show are expected to open soon and booking agents 
are making special plans to cope with the overwhelming demand for the 
limited number of tickets that will be available for their shows. 

Reports are circulating to the effect that the Dave Clark Five — together 
with a couple of other topline English acts — will also tour Australia in June 
although nothing definite could be confirmed at press time. The reports in- 
dicate that the Dave Clark Five will arrive in Australia just in advance of 
the Beatles. 

After a long spell from the singles field, we welcome back Dig Richards on 
the Festival label with “Come On And Dance With Me” c/w “Livin’ Lovin’ 
Wreck.” Also on Festival with a new release is Lucky Starr, who has “We 
Know” coupled with “Say You Do.” Other new releases through the Festival 
group include The Beatle-ettes with “Only Seventeen and “Now We’re 
Together”; Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass with “Mexican Drummer Man”; 
Randy Starr has “Hootenanny On Mars” and Don Cornell is back on the scene 
with “Lost Dreams And Lonely Tears.”

MO As Target For October 

THE RECORD MANUFACTURER 


It couldn’t have happened overnight. Nothing 
worthwhile ever does. It took several years of build- 
ing an organization with a following. And MOA did 
it. The proof came about last week when Rock-Ola, 
Rowe AMI, Seeburg and Wurlitzer— the mainstay 
around which a successful music operator conven- 
tion must be built— agreed to support the 1964 
Convention in October and to exhibit equipment 
from the floor of the Sherman House. MOA now 
has the foundation and from all appearances, the 
finished product will be something to write home 
about. 


With four phonograph factories tucked away, 
Fred Granger and his MOA staff can call on record 
manufacturers all over the country, and drive home 
the hardest-hitting reason-why sales pitch the labels 
have ever heard. Multiply the four factories by the 
number of distributors who will automatically at- 
tend, add the operator following with each distrib- 
utor, mix in the jobbers and wholesalers who will 
follow the crowd and stir softly. 

Study the growing list of amusement machine 
manufacturers— and at the moment there appears 
to be approximately two dozen factories turning 
out games and novelty equipment— and figure on 
participation by all of the pool table firms and 
practically all of the shuffle-bowler-pingame- 
novelty machine makers. Come to think of it, with 
such a promising trade show, look for every com- 
pany of any size to exhibit. 


With the giant NAMA Convention scheduled 
once again to begin the day after the MOA closing, 
as it did last year, no less than 8000 vending op- 
erators and suppliers will be on hand in Chicago. 
There is no question that many will arrive in time 
to catch the MOA show, as they did last year. 

The choice of a new site— the Sherman House— 
appears to be a wise one. Larger space, and better 
facilities, add up to more efficiency and at a trade 
show this means greater sales. 




The forums and panel discussions haven’t been 
decided upon as yet. But the progress made in the 1 
past indicates that this year’s meet will continue to 
offer interesting and informative talks. 


At the moment, MOA’s work is cut out for them. 
The target for the October 14-16 Convention is the 
record manufacturer. With records playing a more 
important part in the continued development of the * 
modern day juke box, and the promise of a Con- 
vention-full of operators looking for assistance 
from the record firms, the MOA Convention is a 
natural for the record industry.

NYS Sec. State Lomenzo 
Okays UJA Speaker Invite, 


All Four Phonograph Manufacturers Will Exhibit 
At MOA Show ; Convention More Promising Than Ever 


e Nixon To Attend Affair 


■ Early Reservation Strengthens MOA Pitch For Labels 


■ Siskind's Victory Dinner 
Will Draw Oxer 600 

NEW YORK — Irving Holzman, gen- 
. eral manager of United East Coast 
Distributors, was presented with a 
plaque in recognition of his role as 
chairman of the UJA-Coin Division 
for 1963, at a meeting of the 1964 
victory-dinner planning committee, 
April 8th. The award was presented 
by A1 Bodkin, Forest Hills Automatic 
Music, signed by Monroe Goldwater, 
president of UJA of New York, and 
' cited Holzman as one “whose devoted 
service helped many thousands begin 
new lives in a land of promise.” 

The dinner-meeting, held at the 
r Skyline Motor Inn, was heavily at- 
tended. Holzman, who is also chair- 
man of the UJA’s 1964 Coin Division 
drive, read a letter from Secretary 
of State of New York State Joseph P. 
Lomenzo, accepting the group’s in- 
vitation to be guest speaker at the 
June 6th Harry Siskind testimonial. 
Holzman also revealed that former 
Vice President and Mrs. Richard 
Nixon, while previously committed for 
the dinner hour the night of June 
6th, will be able to attend the cock- 
tail hour beforehand. 

Sidney Mittleberg, co-chairman of 
the entertainment committee, said 
plans for the affair’s entertainment 
are running smoothly and the selec- 
tion of one of four top-flight corn- 
medians for the show is imminent. 
After a twenty-minute film which 
illustrated the great good UJA has 
done and continues to do for the 
children in Israel and elsewhere, the 
members placed April 22nd, at the 
Astor Hotel, for the committee’s next 
dinner-meeting, and wives will be in- 
vited. 

Others present at the meeting be- 
sides Chairman Holzman were: Mr. 


CHICAGO — “We are very pleased to 
announce today (April 7) that the 
four phonograph manufacturers have 
definitely declared themselves firmly 
in support of the Music Operators of 
America, and they will exhibit their 
equipment during our 1964 conven- 
tion, October 14-16, in the Sherman 
House Hotel.” 

This was a statement issued to 
Cash Box last week by Fred Granger, 
managing director of MOA. 

He further advised that this early 
announcement by all of the major 
phonograph manufacturers beats last 
year’s declaration “by at least two 
months.” 

“This additional time element prior 
to our forthcoming convention gives 
us enough time to talk to the record 
companies,” Granger added. “We are 
certainly going to go all out for their 
support as well.” 

A meeting was held Monday, April 
6, (reported in the April 11 issue of 
Cash Box) in the Sherman House be- 
tween officers of the Music Operators 
of America and representatives of the 
four phonograph manufacturers. At 
that time there were no firm commit- 
ments. 

The meeting was attended bv Lou 
Casola, president of MOA; Clint 


and Mrs. Harry Siskin, Mr. and Mrs. 
A1 Bodkin, Barney Sugarman, Harold 
Kaufman, Meyer Parkoff, A1 Simon, 
Nate Sugarman, Sid Mittleberg, Mike 
Mulqueen, Milton Tucker, Joe Albino, 
Ben Chickofsky, Mr. and Mrs. Bob 
Austin, Ed Barnes, Marty Toohey and 
Ed Adlum. Unfavorable weather con- 
ditions disrupted airport schedules 
and prevented the attendance of 
Chairman Emeritus A1 Denver.

MIAMI — London Distributing Com- 
pany, a subsidiary of the S. L. London 
Music Company of Milwaukee, Wis., 
has announced opening of a $250,000 
service and sales center in Dade 
County’s 330-acre Sunshine State In- 
dustrial Park. 

Perry London, president, made the 
announcement and stated the 19,000

branches in Jacksonville and San 
Juan, Puerto Rico. 

The new structure features modern 
architecture and tropical landscaping

CHIAGO — It appeared to trade ob- 
serves that 1964 will be the year 
for MOA. The early approval to ex- 
hibit, from all juke box firms, was the 
tip-off that MOA and the industry is 
at last swinging harmoniously. Last 
year’s attendance by record company 
personnel was much larger than its 
official participation in the exhibit 
booths. This year, with more than six 
months in which to sell the MOA 
Convention idea, it looked as though 
Manager Fred Granger and the MOA 
Board would finally see the fruits of 
their harvest. 

The Convention, which will be held 
at the Sherman House, Chicago, will 
offer 30,000 square feet of exhibit 
space to record and coin machine- 
vending firms. With the NAMA Con- 
vention scheduled to bring at least 
7000 to town for the four-day vending 
meet which immediately follows at 
McCormick Place, MOA looked like a 
shoe-in. 


Survey Shows Cig Health Scare Fading 

■ Cigaret Sales Rise 


NEW YORK— A Wall Street Journal 
“roundup” report which was con- 
ducted last week, shows that smokers 
are puffing more than ever. There 
are factual indications across the 
country which show that the ‘health 
scare’ has about worn off. And the 
Surgeon General’s report is but three 
months old. 

In twelve states, according to the 
WSJ, cig sales were up in March. 
Tax agent comments from depart- 
ments in dozens of cities across the 
nation have confirmed the early re- 
ports that cig sales were up. Tax 
income was the proof. California tax- 
able income from cigs reached $6.2 
million in March, for instance. New 
York State figures shows a very 
slight dip in cig sales. New Jersey 
reported an “amazing” rebound com- 


ing back from a 15% dive to a 2.7% 
increase. Cigaret manufacturers con- 
firm the increases nationwide. Re- 
tailers concur. 

‘The scare’s subsided,” is the way 
retailers voiced their opinions. A 
giant chain reported a 60% fall-off 
earlier but has recovered to a 5% 
gain. 

Filter tips are running far ahead, 
however, in brand sales. Pall Mall is 
still rated number 1 however. Pipes 
and tobacco are registering large 
gains, in spite of the fade on the 
‘health scare’ reaction. 

A tobacconist in the New York City 
area told reporters, “Each night we 
bless the Surgeon General before go- 
ing to bed.” The retailer handles all 
tobacco products except cigarettes. 


The ‘Flying Fisherman’ Starring Al Jaffarian 


The four faces are smiling in the 
photo above but the fish are frowning. 
Albert Jaffarian, of Albert Music, 
Haverhill, Mass, (second from left), 
and his three buddies have pretty well 
mastered the unique sport of Lake 


equipment, as well as service for all 
types of vending machines. 

The new facility was unveiled at a 
gala premiere party on March 1 which 
was attended by over 1,000 guests and 
members of the vending industry. 


Trout fishing. He and his friend Ernie 
DelDuca (right) are known as the 
“Flying Fishermen” since their Cess- 
na 180 provides the transportation for 
their fishing trips. During the season, 
they go out to the lakes as often as 
three times a week, and have prob- 
ably punched holes in more ice than 
an Antarctic ice-breaker. The photo 
was sent in by C. Marshall Caras, 
Asst. Gen. Mgr. of Trimount Sales 
Co., Boston, who sells Jaffarian coin- 
operated machines, when he isn’t fish- 
ing.

Bulk Vending In Chain 
Stores An NVA Topic 

CHICAGO— “The Future of Bulk 
Vending in Chain Stores,” and “How 
to Reduce Uncertainties in Business 
Decisions,” will be two topics of im- 
portance to be discussed at the 1964 
annual National Vendors Association 
convention to be held April 16th 
through the 19th at the Deauville

bulk vending in chain stores, and Dr. 
Edward Fox, marketing department 
chairman for the University of 
Miami, will speak on decision making. 

Silver will address the assembled 
NVA at their Friday session, April 
17th. The bulk vendors will hear Dr. 
Fox’s observations at the Saturday 
morning meeting, April 18th. Dr. Fox 
is well known in academic and in 
business circles as an aut' .ority on the 
effect population changes have on 
marketing. 


Northern California, Oregon and the 
State of Washington. 

The Stanton Organization has for 
many years handled the distribution 
of all Rowe vending equipment, and 
according to Small, “is well estab- 
lished with a fine sales and service 
organization to accommodate vendors 
in the Southwestern part of the 
United States.” Joseph Mendel has

ABC Vending Cites Highest 
Annual Earnings In History 


Stephano Brothers Release 
‘Heralds’ To Vending Market 

■ Develop Mentholated Little Cigar 


NEW YORK — Jacob Beresin, presi- 
dent of ABC Vending Corporation, 
has announced that earnings of the 
company for 1963 were the highest in 
its history, with a gain of 4.7 per 
cent over the previous year. 

Net income rose to $2,820,000 or 
$1.03 a share in the year ended Dec. 
29, 1963 from $2,694,000 or 98 cents a 
share in 1962. 

Beresin said the corporation’s 1963 
total revenues of $102,637,909 ex- 
ceeded $100 million for the first time. 
Cash dividends of 60 cents per share 
were paid during the year. 

He renorted total revenues in- 
creased over the previous year for the 
16th consecutive time, and that equity 
ner s’ 1 are of common stock rose from 
$8.48 in 1962 to $8.73 in 1963. 

Beresin attributed ABC’s record 
earnings in 1963 to the substantial 


Citrus Fruit Juice 
Vending Researched 

LAKELAND, FLORIDA— The Flor- 
ida Citrus Commission has contracted 
the research company Booz, Allen & 
Hamilton of New York, to evaluate 
and analyse the potential of the vend- 
ing industry to meet a growing de- 
mand in citrus fruit juice consump- 
tion. 

Booz, Allen & Hamilton expect to 
complete this assignment within the 
next six months. An earlier seven- 
month study by this firm revealed 
that, barring a winter freeze, citrus 
growers will be faced with selling 
increasingly larger crops over the 
next five years. The new assignment 
should determine how much of the 
crop can effectively be marketed 
through vending machines. 

Manufacturers of vending ma- 
chines that dispense canned or car- 
toned citrus fruit juice are: The 
Heinz Manufacturing Co., Meterflo 
Dispensers, Inc., Rowe-AC Services, 
Rudd-Melikian, Inc., the Vendo Co. 
and Vendorlator Manufacturing Co. 

Besides the more common citrus 
fruit juices like pineapple and orange, 
many citrus products are being pre- 
pared by some comuanies to meet the 
varied tastes of the public. Libby, 
McNeill & Libby, of Chicago, have 
recent’ y introduced a low-ca'orie lem- 
onade product which should appeal to 
a large segment of the consumer pop- 
ulation. 


Runyon To Instruct 1 Ops 
On Rowe Candy Vender 

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. — A service class 
on the operation of the Rowe ‘Tasty 
Twenty’ candy vending machine will 
be conducted by Vincent Francis- 
chetti of the Rowe Manufacturing 
Company. The class will be held at 
the Olde Colonial Inn at 1074 Broad 
Street, Newark, N.J., and will be 
hosted by the Runyan Sales Company. 

All operators and their servicemen 
are invited to attend the class. A 
dinner will precede the class and will 
begin at 6:00 PM. For details, con- 
tact Morris Rood, Runyan Sales, in 
Springfield. 


number of long-term contracts signed 
with industrial plants; institutions 
and shopping centers; government 
agencies; airline terminals; military 
bases and theatre chains. In the latter 
category, a five-year refreshment 
service contract signed during the re- 
ported year with RKO Theatres, Inc. 
is expected to yield sales exceeding 
$16 million during the life of the con- 
tra R. 

The new contracts, he said, have 
put ABC in a stronger position to 
capitalize this year on the general 
rise in public food and refreshment 
spending brought about by the recent 
Federal Tax cut. 

He believes this increased spending 
and a marked ground swell in attend- 
ance at motion picture theatres, the 
category that accounted for 45.3 per 
cent of the company’s revenue in 
1963, will produce increased earnings 
in 1964. 


New Products 



The IEE ‘Lumi-Switch’ Six-Lamp 
Push-Button Switch Unit, released 
recently by the Industrial Electronic 
Engineers, Inc., offers three colors 
(two lamps per color), several other 
color-lamp combinations, and a num- 
ber of horizontal and vertical split- 
face options. The unit is .965 in. high, 
1.205 in. wide and features a push 
button viewing screen that is .75 in. 
high and .98 in. wide. The legend may 
either be engraved or put on film be- 
hind the screen. 

The ‘Lumi-Switch’ lamp-screen as- 
sembly pulls out from the front — no 
twist action or tools are required. A 
s’-fetv mechanism prevents the switch 
from being activated accidentally dur- 
ing- insertion of assembly. 

‘Lurm -Switch’ will generally fit the 
same size cut-out used for most four- 
lamp units. Open access to lamp ter- 
minals is provided at the rear of the 
ur.it. 


Coffee Insfifufe To 
Hosf Venders' Workshop 

NEW YORK — E. G. Laughery, presi- 
dent of t v e Coffee Brewing Institute 
announced the beginning of a fresh- 
brew coffee workshop, which will 
commence at Institution headquar- 
ters Sept. 14th, with four-day classes. 

Laughery said the four-day classes 
will instruct coffee-vending operators 
in those steps necessary to insure 
quality in both single-cup and batch- 
brew coffee vending. 

Models of most of the American 
made coffee vending machines will be 
on hand to help familiarize personnel 
with most of the problems an operator 
or serviceman will encounter. The 
workshop will be conducted by the 
Institute’s field research director, 
Kenneth W. Burgess. 


PHILADELPHIA— Heralds, the mod- 
ern little cigar that is setting sales 
records throughout the country, is 
now offered through vending ma- 
chines, according to Stephano Bros., 
Philadelphia tobacco manufacturer. A 
separate vending division under Jo- 
seph Doyle has been established in 
Philadelphia to meet the growing de- 
mand for the filter-tipped cigarette- 
sized little cigar. 

Doyle’s division will handle inqui- 
ries from Cash Box readers who wish 
to add modern little cigars to their 
lines. Doyle pointed out that Heralds 
have a retail prive equivalent to cig- 
arettes, “but offer higher profits to 
vendors.” 

A selection of machine fronts are 
available, and additional display ma- 
terial can be obtained from the com- 
pany. Doyle explained that it is 
important for cigarette vending ma- 
chines to show that little cigars are 
available. Test markets have shown 
that where good displays were made, 
modern little cigar sales grew much 
more rapidly than anticipated. 


Phillip Morris To Broaden 
Distribution Of 'Multifilter' 

NEW YORK— Phillip Morris Incor- 
porated has decided to extend distri- 
bution of their new ‘Multifilter’ char- 
coal-filtered cigarette to virtually the 
entire New England area and parts 
of New York State, on the basis of 
“strong acceptance of the ‘Multifilter’ 
in five introductory markets in the 
mid and far west,” Joseph F. Cull- 
man, 3rd, president of Phillip Morris 
Inc., announced. 

Cullman stated that the Phillip 
Morris ‘Multifilter’ “already has won 
the loyalty of thousands of cigarette 
smokers in its initial introductory 
areas.” According to Cullman, ‘Multi- 
filter’ is based on “a new concept of 
total cigarette engineering and uses 
specially processed activated gran- 
ules in a completely different way 
... by exposing all, instead of just 
a portion of the smoke, to the acti- 
vated granules.” The new cigarettes 
will retail at popular prices, Cullman 
stated, and will be heralded with an 
“intensive advertising schedule in all 
media, with heavy emphasis on news- 
papers.” 


New Coin Box Locks 
Automatically 

READING, PA. — A self-locking coin 
box for vending machines, designed 
to lock automatically when removed 
from the machine, was recently in- 
troduced by Inter-County Industries. 

The box features a trigger-type 
device which releases a spring-loaded 
sliding cover when the coin box is 
removed from the vending machine, 
to prevent the removal of coins until 
the box is unlocked in the company 
counting room. 

As coin boxes are removed from 
vending machines, they are replaced 
with similar boxes, set to t % e open or 
“receive” position. All boxes are “in- 
ventoried” to provide a positive check 
on collection and restocking. 

Boxes are sized to meet all standard 
vending machines, and various coin 
funnels make it possible to use these 
new “security” coin boxes in other 
types of machines, including music, 
pin ball and bowling machines. 


Stephano Bros, pioneered the mod- 
ern little cigar market with Trends 
in 1958. Heralds with the filter mouth- 
piece were introduced in 1963 and 
this year the company has test-mar- 
keted Kingstons, a mentholated little 
cigar with the filter mouthpiece. 


NEW YORK — The American Tobac- 
co Company released the Roi-Tan 
Filter Tip last March and thereby 
joined her competitors in the little 
cigar field. 

The Roi-Tan little cigar is the 
length of a king-sized cigarette, car- 
ries a white estron filter and a cork 
tip

New Tape-Athon Magnetic Tape Playback 


The Tape-, 
both Portable 

versions. 


"Repeater" shown in 
and Rack-Mounting 


INGLEWOOD, CALIF.— The avail- 
ability of a new magnetic tape play- 
back deck featuring a pulse-initiated 
repeating program has been an- 
nounced by Tape-Athon Corp. 

The new player will accept pro- 
grams of any duration from 20 sec- 
onds to 8 hours, recorded on a buit- 
able Yz track recorder at speeds of 
1%, 3%, or lYz inches per second. 
Programs may be announcements, 
narrations, music, or combinations of 
these, recorded once on each track of 
the tape. A program is started by pro- 
viding an external momentary pulse 
of 6 to 12V ac/dc to the player via a 
built-in connector. The entire pro- 
gram is then played to the end of the 
recording, the tape reverses and im- 
mediately shuts off, waiting for the 
next “start” pulse. 

The “Repeater” offers a highly effi- 
cient method of producing a taped 
program on command. Such pro- 
grams, for example, as an explana- 


tion of a company’s products or fa- 
cilities at a mobile display where the 
viewer would start the narration by 
push-button; a salesman’s story to a 
group of his prospective customers; a 
musical program accompanying a live 
or filmed presentation; or audio-la- 
beling applications for displays at 
museums, art galleries, or zoological 
parks. 

The tape transport of the Repeater 
itself uses the basic Tape-Athon deck, 
providing maximum performance and 
a high degree of reliability. It is 
available in Portable, Rack Mounting 
and Console styles, monophonic or 
stereo versions. The stereo models 
may also be used as a master control 
element in an animated display sys- 
tem by recording start and stop sig- 
nals on the second track. 

Complete data is available from the 
Marketing Department, Tape-Athon 
Corp., 523 South Hindry, Inglewood, 
California. 


Scopitone In Posh 
Spots; Mitnick To 

MIAMI BEACH— Jack Mitnick, Di- 
rector of Sales for Scopitone Inc.- 
USA, the newly formed American 
manufacturer of the French coin- 
operated audio-visual machine, re- 
vealed last week that certain location 
tests of the Scopitone are being con- 
ducted in and around Miami, and that 
early indications point to a highly 
successful future for the machine in 
America. 

Mitnick said that the Scopitone has 
been in operation in prominent res- 
taurants in Miami, Miami Beach, 
Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale, and 
in the Eden Roc, Americana and the 
Poodle Bar at the Fontainebleau. 
“The machines have been getting ex- 
cellent play at these spots,” the sales 
exec said, “and as soon as the Ameri- 
can-made films are available, the sales 
should climb even higher.” 

Scopitone-USA has been making 
use of the European films which were 
made especially for its operation over 
there. Most of these films feature 
prominent European talent and are 
quite lavish in their production, ac- 
cording to the sales director. 

Mitnick has been getting many op- 
erator and distributor inquiries about 
the Scopitone, he said. Shipments of 
the machine arrive each week from 
France, where CAMECA, the origi- 
nator of Scopitone, is based. 

Scopitone has already been tested 
in Switzerland, Germany, Norway, 
Sweden, Spain, Belgium, The United 
Kingdom, Japan, Australia and Can- 
ada, and all, according to Mitnick, 
“with tremendously successful and 
portent results.” 

A thirty-two foot trailer, with the 
interior a replica of a tavern, will be 
rolling next week. This will be Mit- 
nick’s mobile showroom. “Look for 
Scopitone’s theater of musical enter- 
tainment to come your way soon,” 
Mitnick said. Operators may arrange 


Florida 
Hit Road 

for appointments to view the Scopi- 
tone in action by contacting Mitnick 
at Scopitone USA, 605 Lincoln Rd., 
Miami Beach, Florida. 


Change In Silver Content 
Won # t Affect Industry 

ST. LOUIS — Proposals before Con- 
gress to reduce the silver content of 
U.S. coinage would have no effect on 
the vending machine industry accord- 
ing to Thomas B. Donahue, president 
of Universal Match Corporation. 

A bill sponsored by Senator Met- 
calf (D., Mont.) would change the 
content of silver coins to 80 per cent 
silver and 20 per cent copper, as com- 
pared with the present 90 per cent 
silver and 10 per cent copper. Other 
proposals would change the content 
to 50 per cent silver and 50 per cent 
copper. 

Universal Match Corporation’s sub- 
sidiary, National Rejectors, Inc., is 
the principal supplier of coin han- 
dling equipment to the vending indus- 
try. 

“In the company’s many years of 
manufacturing coin handling equip- 
ment,” Donahue said, “it has suc- 
cessfully produced equipment to han- 
dle many different kinds of coins in 
use in the many foreign countries it 
serves. For example, we have equip- 
ment in service that handles Canadian 
coins with an 80:20 silver-copper ra- 
tio. We are confident that we can 
cope with any change Congress will 
make in our coinage.” 

Donahue also stated that in his 
opinion the Treasury Department will 
afford the vending machine industry 
an opportunity, as it did in the past 
when the content of coins was being 
considered or changed, to make cer- 
tain that any coinage would operate 
properly in vending machines.

Tel. HEnderson 1-4100 



It was “Grand Prix” week with Rock-Ola distribs along the east coast. Fol- 
lowing the Chi meets in the Windy City, factory execs met with eastern dis- 
tribs in NYC’s Summit Hotel and southern-west coast distribs in New Orleans. 
The results: you’ll hear about the showings this week as distribs unveil the 
attractive new phono for ops. Joe Ash, in town, went back on a cloud joined 
by salesman Fred Pliner. Red Wallace took the meetings in while in Chicago 
where all four phono factories said they’ll show at MOA (And ain’t that good 
news). Joe Grillo, Rochester’s Rock-Ola man, delighted with the machine. “Now 
I'm serious about expanding my sales force. This equipment will help me do 
just that.” Rubin Franco, Morris Piha, Joe Capilouto and Howard Robinson 
formed a combine to serve the Georgia territory. Irv Blumenfeld to NYC for 
the meet and back to Baltimore same day for local talks. Tom Greco and his 
brothers are selling up a storm already. Jules Olshein will handle the Albany 
action. Larry LeStourgeon in the hospital but L. Holder reports good reaction 
to the ‘Grand Prix.’ A1 Levine and Bob LeBlanc, doing a big job in Boston, 
will tour the territory via 4-city stops. S&H Distributing planning Shreve- 
port and New Orleans shows this week. Harry Sanders will blanket the Nash- 
ville area with mailings. Dave Stem, after many years of new machines, ad- 
mits the ‘Grand Prix’ and the ‘Phonette’ are the best combo he’s ever distrib- 
uted. Bert Betti, sub-distrib, back from his cruise just in time to view the 
machine. A1 Simon and A1 D’lnzillo locked up several diner deals already. Ed 
Hudson, Bristol, Va., already calling on ops with the advertising material. 
And the machine is but one week old ( ! ) . 

Irv Holzman has just returned from a week of sunning and swimming, on his 
Florida based cruiser, via a few days stop in Chicago for a business confab 
with Lyn Durant of United. Irv, whose tan makes our ‘Manhattan palor’ look 
a little sick, says he’s eagerly awaiting the new games he saw going into 
production in Chicago, but admits he has little time to complain while shipping 
‘Tempest,’ ‘Tornado’ and ‘Bank Pool.’ Lou Druckman was floating along at 
least four inches above the ground thinking about the new white ‘Wildcat’ 
that was sitting in his driveway at home. He reports modestly that the blue 
of the seatcovers matches the blue of his eyes. 

Joe Munves was down at brother Mike’s place trying to catch his breath 
after his grand tour of some twenty-odd states. Joe reports a great deal of 
success, especially with arcade orders. Mike’s dog ‘Rusty’ is still the world’s 
severest critic, always ready to growl his disapproval of anyone or anything 
that doesn’t measure up to his standards. It looks could kill, just ask Dick 
Greenburg how he plans to get home once the World’s Fair opens — especially 
when the Mets have a double-header and Aquaduct and Roosevelt Raceway 
are humming! 

A1 Simon reports the excellent reception by operators of the ChiCoin games 
he distributes — ‘Spotlite’ shuffle alley, ‘Cadillac’ big-bowler and the ‘Champion 
Rifle’ gun. A1 will continue to display the Rock-Ola ‘Rhapsody II’ and the 
‘Capri II’ along with the Wall Phono in his showroom. Rock-Ola will continue 
the production of this equipment, and the ‘Grand Prix’ is actually an addition 
to this line. Simon visualizes the ‘Phonette’ wallbox, companion piece to the 
‘Grand Prix,’ in such places as posh motels and diners, and sees it opening 
up new locations due to its facility of installation. The ‘Phonette’ will be de- 
livered a few weeks from now, Simon stated. It can be used with any machine. 

It certainly looks like Seeburg has a double-smash with its ‘Twin Pack’ 
idea. They initially hit with ‘Sinatra’s Sinatra’ and now they have followed 
with Ray Charles’ ‘Sweet and Sour Tears.’ 

Lou Wolberg was back at his Runyon Sales desk after a bout with the flu. 
Lou keeps Rowe AMI music line sales moving along and says he expects big 
things from Bally soon. Barney Sugerman, back in his New York office, ad- 
vised that he’s spending a great deal of time with factory production programs 
now that he’s involved in the Bally and Scopitone plants. Here’s a guy who 
operates, distributes and manufactures, (so where does he get the time to sit 
around and schmooze?). Sid Gerber’s wife recuperating just fine. Wolberg’s 
wife operated on at Beth Israel Wed., by Thursday the report was “coming 
along fine” and Louie could smile again. . . . Fran and A1 (Senator) Bodkin, 
in town for the UJA meet. Bodkin swings into action next week contacting 
factories for the much-needed donations. . . . Mike Mulqueen got the thrill of 
his life via a new ‘Sens-O-Rama’ machine which features 3-d thrill rides (and 
belly dancers). . . . The new Scopitone is drawing big crowds at Mister J’s 
in town (a Paramount location). Twists, hully gullys and can-cans in color, 
all for 254 per. It’s breaking in several top spots in the NYC area. 

Teddy Blatt went to Miami Beach for a quiet rest. A1 Denver planned a 
Miami vacation himself, at about the same time, and for the same reason. Max 
Weiss and A1 Miniaci gave the Florida sun a second look and hopped aboard 
a plane for the MB scene. Max met Irv Holzman while he was there— -and what 
happened? The NATD throws a convention and everyone stops their ‘resting’ 
long enough to attend the meeting at the Fontainebleau, and it was back to 
business (talk) before anyone could say ‘how many packs does the stop do?’ 

The action’s hot at Seacoast. Prexy Dave Stem delighted over operator 
acceptance to his new ‘Grand Prix’ which is incidentally, an addition to the 
line. Still on display are the “Rhapsody II” and “Capri II” phonos. Charlie 
Reissner, Ed Adams, Bill Furman keeping Edith Alster busy typing up orders 
for the factory. Dave’s hot on the ‘Caravelle’ cig vendor, too. 

Murray (the K) Kaye keeps hopping as his diner installations continue 
growing in leaps and bounds. He’s got coin machine operators on one hand and 
the vending ops clamoring on the other, and when the coinmen scream for 
equipment, you can’t complain. . . . Meyer Parkoff spoke with old-time New 
Yorker Jack Gordon and former Philly-citizen Bill Adair before the top See- 
burg execs departed for Japan. Jack’s son Bobby is swinging again with 
‘Malta,’ a hot single on Decca, and like man, that’s the way a clarinet should 
sound. ( !) 

Harold Kaufman is busy with UJA duties when he’s not selling Wurlitzer 
‘2800’ phonographs. Sudden committments forced him to revise his plans to 
attend the UJA-Coin Division dinner committee’s meeting last Wed. night 
at the Sky Line Motor Inn. Harry Siskin, never at a loss for words, was asked 
what the attendance at his testimonial dinner June 6, would probably be. 
“They’ll need two hotels,” said Siskin, “and I’d better get ’em if I need ’em.” 
How can you argue with a guy who sells tickets, raises money and bugs the 
chef to make sure the hors d’ouevres are hot. 

Steve Tarzana was patronizing the Tenth Avenue hot dog man ’neath the 
orange and blue umbrella while partner Sam Morrison was cooking up a deal 
with a distrib. Between Steve’s photography and Sam’s coin collecting, these 
two guys haven’t too much time for the route. (So how has it grown to al- 
most 100 machines?) 

Tiny Weintraub, NY Automatic Vending head, and Nash Gordon, Manager 
of the statewide vending group, are on the road, day and night, preaching 
the gospel of “no sales to teenagers.” Between them, you can bet that New 
York State will be in good shape for the moment of truth, if and when it 
becomes necessary. 

Look for a ‘special financial incentive’ for juke box operators via one-stops 
on the new Syse release ‘Concerto For Swingers,’ which Sy Shaffer, president 
of the newly formed Syse Records, plans to offer soon. . . . A. D. Palmer and 
his wife Estelle, off to the Caribbean for a cruise which will last two weeks.

Chicago Chatter 


The postscript to MOA’s meeting April 1 with executives of the four major 
phonograph manufacturers can now be written — and, it bodes well for this 
year’s convention in the Sherman House (October 14-16)! As far as Seeburg 
Corp., Rowe AC Mfg., Rock-Ola Mfg. Corp., and Wurlitzer Co. are concerned, 
Fred Granger, MOA’s managing director, elatedly passed the information 
along that all four companies will definitely exhibit. Prexy Lou Casola, vice 
prexys Clint Pierce and John “Red” Wallace, and board chairman Harry 
Snodgrass all dittoed Granger’s attitude. This early acceptance gives MOA 
an extra two months more to concentrate on interesting the record producers 
r in exhibiting in the ’64 convention. Phono executives who met with MOA are: 
Fred Poliak and Paul Huebsch, of Rowe AC Mfg.; Hugh Gorman, Rock-Ola 
Mfg. Corp.; Stanley Jarocki, the Seeburg Corp.; and A. D. Palmer of the 
Wurlitzer Co. 

p Bally prexy Bill O’Donnell, Herb Jones, and other sundry Bally brass are 
I zooming for joy over the release this week of Bally’s “Sky Divers” skill-shoot- 
ing, single player, flipper game . . . While on the association kick: We just 
got the word from old buddy Howard Ellis that because of the heavy increase 
i ? in diversification (to full line vending, as well as music and games) among 
midwestem operators, the Music Guild of Nebraska name has recently been 
changed to Coin Operated Industries of Nebraska (C-O-I-N). The assn’s 
annual spring meeting has been scheduled for June 6-7 in the Paxton Hotel. 

| Among the state organizations which will be on hand in Omaha are: Minne- 
sota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming and 
i Nebraska. 

A happy trio at Chicago Dynamic Industries is Sam Gensburg, Mort Secore 
^ and Ralph Wyckoff. The reason is the favorable reaction they’re getting on 
the new ChiCoin two-player “Bronco” pingame. Production is being pushed 
L terrifically on other ChiCoin amusement games: “Champion” rifle-target 
1 range, “Cadillac” big ball bowler, and “Spotlite” puck shuffle alley to meet 
( the nationwide demand . . . 

j While Alvin and Nate Gottlieb and Judd Weinberg are cheering over the 

V exceptional continued sales acceptance everywhere of Gottlieb’s “Ship-Mates” 

I four-player flipper amusement game, they’re also awaiting the return from 

Miami Beach of Dave Gottlieb. We haven’t seen the much traveled Mr. and 
w Mrs. Sol Gottliebs these days. 

j On hand at Empire Coin’s gala showing of Rock-Ola’s new “Grand Prix” 
(model 450) 160 selection coin-operated phonograph, Friday evening, April 3, 
in the Como Inn were Sam Stern and Jack Mittel, of Williams Electronic Mfg. 
Co. and Dr. David Rockola, Hugh Gorman and Frank Schultz, of Rock-Ola 
Mfg. Corp. Other visitors were Art and Terry Rapacz. Among the genial hosts 
were: Empire Coin’s owner Gil Kitt, Joe and Marian Robbins, Jack and Sibby 
Burns, and Mr. and Mrs. Bill Milner. Representing Midway Mfg. were co- 
heads Hank Ross and Marcine “Iggy” Wolverton, and “Big Bob” Jonesi. This 
trio is very enthused over the success they’re enjoying with Midway’s “Top 
Hit” baseball amusement game. They hinted that many pleasant surprises 
will shortly come off the drawing boards. 

Another big bash was held, last Sunday, April 12, to fete the new Rock-Ola 
i “Grand Prix” phono. This one was hosted by Hymie and Eddie Zorinsky, 

I H.Z. Vending & Sales, in the Diplomat Hotel, in downtown Omaha. Operators 
and their families indulged in many goodies, such as dinner, dancing, swim- 
( ming (in the Diplomat’s heated swimming pool), and the ever present cock- 
r* tails . . . IAAP’s Bob Blundred returned recently after a whirlwind nation- 
| wide trek with the association’s prexy Fred W. Pearce. 

Yup, Spring is here at World Wide Distribs, judging by the happy expres- 
sions on the faces of Nate Feinstein, Harold Schwartz, Irv Ovitz, and Fred 
Skor. Business is that great! The doors at World Wide keep swinging open 
by visiting operators. 

I When we chatted with Bill DeSelm, of United Mfg. Co., last week we 

* learned that there’s a whirlwind of action in sales on United’s “Bankpool,” 
“Tempest” shuffle alley, and “Tornado” big ball bowler. 

A veritable beehive of activity is noted at First Coin Machine Exchange, 
where prexy Joe Kline, Sam Kolber and Fred Kline are convinced they have 
the big winner in Wurlitzer’s phono. Other heavy action is on First Coin’s 
export business . . . Speaking of Wurlitzer: We wish to congratulate C. B. 
Ross, who was upped last week to head up Wurlitzer’s Service Dept. We also 

* extend best greetings to Joe Hrdlicka, who retired from that post last week, 
after serving the firm since ’way back in 1928. 

Atlas Music Prexy Eddie Ginsburg and his lovely Adele departed last week 
for a bit of sun and fun in Florida. Meanwhile, back at the distrib, Stan Levin 
r info’s that the sun is shining brightly there with emphasis on Rowe-AMI’s 
“Tropicana” phono, which is maintaining excellent acceptance among local 
operators. Vending sales, according to Sam Gersh, Bob Fabian and Joe Klykun, 
are also up these days at Atlas Music. 

Bet Art Weinand thinks we overlooked him and his lovely Kay, who at- 
tended the gala Empire Coin shindig last Friday evening (April 3). Art and 
Kay dropped in later, looking like a couple of youngsters (and at 30 yet!!) 

' • • • Herb Perkins, head of Purveyor Distribs, tells us export business is boom- 

ing at his bailiwick these Spring days. Local business isn’t taking a back seat 
either, according to Herb. 

Y Johnny Frantz, prexy of J. F. Frantz Mfg. Co., always looks forward to 
this time of the year. He gets busier — but he loves it! Don Congdon spends 
more time on the road of late. Supply’s Chet Gore is yelling HELP! HELP! 
these (Br-rrr) balmy Spring days. He’s pushing his production to the utmost 
to keep up with sales.

Rock-Ola Distribs Unveil ‘Grand Prix’ 


■ Operators Invited To 
View Mid-Season 
Addition To '64 
Rhapsody-Capri Line 


CHICAGO — Following distributor 
meetings in the southern section of 
the country, Rock-Ola execs returned 
from New Orleans last week and an- 
nounced that the new “Grand Prix” 
phonograph and the “Phonette” wall- 
box model will be available at Rock- 
Ola distributor showrooms beginning 
this week. The new machines were 
unveiled before distributors during 
a two-week regional sales meeting 
tour (CB April 11). Distributors are 
conducting individual shows, some 
holding Open House ceremonies, 
while others have reserved meeting 
rooms in local motels and hotels. 

Rock-Ola President Dave Rockola 
told the industry that the factory 
is “ushering in a new world of sound 
and profit” when he spoke with mid- 
western distribs last week. He said 
that the ‘Grand Prix’ Model 425 and 
the ‘Phonette’ wallbox-speaker “pre- 
sent the operators with a rare com- 
bination of ultimate styling with the 
same ultimate in ‘no-service’ engineer- 
ing.” 

The distinctively striking cabinet 
styling provides the “Grand Prix” 
phonograph with an ultra modern 
fine furniture appearance. It has a 
walnut finish of stain-resistant, mar- 
resistant “conolite” plastic laminate. 
The handsome grille adds a final 
touch of class and distinction to the 
cabinetry. 

Rockola heaped many words of 
praise on the rich sound reproduction 
in this exciting, new Rock-Ola high- 
styled phonograph. 

He said: “ ‘Grand Prix’ is easily 
our greatest triumph in designing 
and musical reproduction. It delivers 
a fidelity of full dimensional sound 
never before possible in a coin-oper- 
ated phonograph. 

“Now every location, corner coffee 
shop, or swank club-house can enjoy 
stereo record albums, as well as 
singles, with perfect reproduction — 
in clarity and sound.” 

Rockola further explained that 
“Grand Prix” plays up to 80 singles 
or LP records, with 160 selections. 
The LP’s can be installed in groups 
of 10. The customer has the choice 
of both sides. Or, a mixture of any 
bank of records in any preferred 
sequence in 33-% or 45 rpm (7 inch) 
records. The exclusive Rock-Ola Mech- 
O-Matic changer and revolving rec- 
ord magazine assures ‘fail-safe’ se- 
lection constantly. 

Edward G. Doris, executive vice 
president, stated that the “Phonette” 
companion-piece to “Grand Prix” 
will assuredly bring in extra profits 
on every play. It features two built- 
in stereo speakers, a single selector 
panel, and personal volume control. 

“The big surprise in ‘Phonette’ is 
not only the big step-up in collec- 
tions,” Doris added. “It can also be 
used with any current model Rock- 
Ola phonograph!” 

Another surprising innovation in 
the “Grand Prix” musical package 
being delivered in this gala intro- 
duction is a new transistorized ampli- 
fier system. Which, will provide life- 
long service simplicity for the phono. 
It is a big money-saver on tube re- 
placements, which are no longer nec- 
essary, according to Doris. It also 
eliminates excessive heat, saves wear 
on other components, and greatly 
simplifies the servicing of the phono- 
graph. 

There is a sealed tamper-proof au- 
tomatic money counter in the phono, 
which counts nickels, dimes, quarters 
and half-dollars. It totals exact ma- 
chine receipts. The total reading is

tioned “window” on the cabinet. 

The automatic money counter, Doris 
advised, also works in conjunction 
with the “Phonette” stereo speaker- 
selector unit. 

“Music operators all over the world 
can readily see now that Rock-Ola 
Manufacturing Corporation has gone 
all out to deliver the ultimate in 
excellence for all locations,” David 
Rockola asserted. “Many months of 
painstaking development have gone 
into this exciting creation, and we 
want to tell the world!” 

“This great advancement we are 
presenting now to music operators 
everywhere is just one in a dramatic 
series of developments we are so 
proud to sign our name to,” Rock- 
ola concluded.

Nebraska Ops 
To Hold Annual 
Meet June 6-7 

OMAHA — The coin-operated indus- 
try’s association in Nebraska has ex- 
panded its scope from music and 
games to include the full line of vend- 
ing equipment, and because of this, 
has changed the organization name 
from the Music Guild of Nebraska to 
Coin Operated Industries of Ne- 
braska. 

The motion to change the Guild’s 
name was raised and passed at their 
December meeting, because new mem- 
bership from the vending ranks, from 
cigarettes to bulk items, called for a 
more representative name. 

The first meeting of the new or- 
ganization will be held June 6th 
through the 7th at the Paxton Hotel 
in Omaha. This will be a regional 
meeting of the industry with opera- 
tors from Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, 
South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming, 
and Nebraska. 

All manufacturers, jobbers and dis- 
tributors will be invited to display 
their latest equipment, which will in- 
clude all types of coin-operated mu- 
sic, games and vending machines. 
There will be a charge of $50 per 
booth. According to a COIN invita- 
tion, this money will be used to de- 
fray the cost of a floor show, which 
will follow a banquet, a general busi- 
ness meeting and the election of offi- 
cers for the coming year.

Bally Ships 1-Plyr. Pin Game— 

‘Sky Diver’ Has 2-Play Adjustment 


B Bally Offers Increased 
Multiple Player Options 


■ New Flipper 
Offers Bonuses 


CHICAGO — Escrow or credit unit in 
flipper-type games manufactured by 
Bally Manufacturing Company, Chi- 
** cago, may be set for 2, 3 or 4 plays 
for a single coin, according to an- 
nouncement by Bill O’Donnell, Bally 
president. “The 3, 4, or 5 plays ad- 
justment,” O’Donnell explained, “has 
been standard in all double coins 
Bally games ever since we entered 
the flipper field.” 

The 2 plays adjustment is a new 
convenience available in ‘Sky Divers’ 
and all Bally flippers hereafter. 
f “The adjustment is very useful to 
some of our European customers. For 
v example, in Greece games are op- 
_ erated at one play for 1 drachma, 2 
plays for 2 drachma, both coins be- 
ing current in Greece. In 5-cents ter- 
ritory in the United States and Can- 
ada operators can pick up dimes as 
well as nickels, without the patron 
bothering to get change for the dimes 
in his pocket. Instruction cards in- 
vite the player to play ‘1 play 5 cents 
(deposit nickel), 2 plays 10 cents 
(deposit dime).’ ” 


. U.S. Tobacco Cites 
Sales Increase 

FLEMINGTON, N.J.— Stockholders 
attending the annual meeting of 
United States Tobacco Company 
April 7th, were informed that in- 
creased sales of snuff and smoking 
tobacco products during the first 
quarter indicated that earnings for 
the Company should continue to rise 
in 1964. 

A report showing increased income 
from snuff and pipe tobacco sales 
during the part of the first quarter 
for which figures are complete was 
< given by Charles C. Winston, vice 
president, who presided at the meet- 
ing. He also noted that new products 
had been introduced during the last 
year in every major area of the Com- 

e pany’s operations — tobacco, specialty 
foods and writing instruments. 

A financial analysis of the Com- 
pany’s operations during the last dec- 
ade was prepared by Eric J. Seyffer, 
vice president in charge of finance. 
Mr. Seyffer’s report showed that net 
earnings had increased from $1.26 
per common share in 1954 to $2.05 per 
, share in 1963, and that dividends on 
common stock had been increased 
from $1.20 to $1.40 per share. Acqui- 
sitions during this growth period in- 
. eluded Circus Foods and Lummis & 
Co. specialty foods divisions and 
Tuckersharpe Pen Company, Inc., a 
subsidiary. 



BALLY 'SKY DIVER' 

CHICAGO — “Sky-diving, the world’s 
newest, wildest sport, is the theme of 
the new Bally single-player flipper- 
game, ‘Sky Divers’,” says Bill O’Don- 
nell, president of Bally Manufactur- 
ing Company, Chicago. 

“Two sky-divers on the backglass,” 
he explained, are maneuvered by skill 
shots from airplane to safe landing, 
scoring specials for arriving on solid 
ground. Both sky-divers are always 
‘on the way’ to special scores, but 
player can skill-select the ‘nearest to 
winning’ diver at start of each game. 
Of course, the sky-diver feature holds 
over from game to game, stimulating 
repeat play and attracting players to 
the game. 

“In addition to one of the most fas- 
cinating carry-over features ever built 
into a flipper game, ‘Sky Divers’ gives 
the biggest extra balls bargain ever 
offered to flipper-pilots. The Free Ball 
Gate, which is opened 2 different 
ways, returns the ball to the shooter- 
tip for further play. The Bonus Ball 
Gate can be opened 3 different ways, 
but the ball returns, not to the shoot- 
er, but to the area directly above the 
top rollovers. 

“Widespread location tests indicate 
that ‘Sky Divers’ will be a greater 
single-player hit even than ‘Monte 
Carlo,’ and we are planning our pro- 
duction to be sure that all demand 
is satisfied.”

Labeling And Economics 

WASHINGTON — Federal Trade 
Commission Chairman Paul R. Dixon 
has stated that when the decision to 
either require health-hazard warning 
labels on cigarette packs and in ciga- 
rette advertising or not, comes up, his 
commission will bear in mind the pos- 


sible loss in income and even in jobs 
that would result from such legisla- 
tion. 

The Commission, fresh from three' 
days of hearing those in favor of the 
labeling, has invited all against such 
legislation to file their proposals with 
the FTC before April 15th.

Statewide Survey 

■ Membership Drive On 



PHIL EISENBERG 


JOHNSTOWN, PA. — Joseph LaSala, 1 
newly appointed executive secretary 
of the Associated Music Operators of r 
Pennsylvania, Inc., has enlisted the 
services of a Pittsburgh accounting 
firm in order to compile a list of sta- 
tistics on the State’s coin-operated 
industry which would present an ac- 
curate picture of the industry to 
legislators. These figures should be 
released soon. 

The announcement was made last 
week by Phil Eisenberg, Consolidated 
Vending Co., Johnstown, and Associa- 
tion official. Eisenberg said that La- 
Sala and the accountants have sent v 
out about 500 questionnaires to Penn- 
sylvania operators and will determine 
figures on the industry from an ex- 
pected 100 replies. LaSala was ap- 
pointed to the post of executive secre- 
tary at a general meeting of the As- 
sociation in Harrisburg, March 22, 
and according to Eisenberg, “he’s 
doing a wonderful job.” 

Association members at the Harris- 
burg meeting also decided to exert a 
greater effort in recruiting new op- ‘ 
erators. Eisenberg said the drive is 
coming along “real fine.” He outlined 
the AMOA of Pennsylvania’s unique 
membership structure which auto- * 

matically gives the operator member- 
ship in his local organization (usually 
made up of ops from two or three 
counties), in the State Association , 

and in the National Association. Dues 
are $120 annually. Separate member- 
ship in any single organization is not | 

encouraged. f |

MAGNIFICENCE OF REPRODUCTION Now Rock-Ola

The simply styled Rock-Ola Grand Prix is the complete

tion they want, with automatic Rock-Ola dependability. 
And Rock-Ola built-in quality keeps your profits at a 
maximum, servicing at a minimum. 



NEW WAY TO profit ... For extra profits on every

speaker-selector unit. Two built-in stereo speakers bring 
private listening pleasure to booth or bar. Simple selector 
panel and personal volume controls boost plays and 
profits. The Phonette can be used with any current 
model Rock-Ola phonograph.
